Buyer's market

Turns out that a terrorist attack on Seattle wouldn't be all bad -- that is, if you've got your eye on a bunglow in the Queen Anne neighborhood but can't afford the $1.2 million asking price. An anthrax outbreak could cause median home prices in the Emerald City to plummet by nearly $300,000, experts say.

Smart homeowners, therefore, are advised to protect their properties' value by installing a biohazard containment facility adjacent to the butler's pantry.


If you have to ask ... : A rare original Apple I from 1976 that was hand-built by company co-founder Steve Wozniak has sold at auction for nearly $388,000.

Everyone knows that you have to pay a premium for Apple products, but this is getting ridiculous.

Don't Know Much About History: On this day in 1804, Vice President Aaron Burr mortally wounded former Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton in a pistol duel.

The duelling tradition is long gone, but ironically President Barack Obama reportedly has felt like shooting Joe Biden after several of the vice president's more celebrated gaffes.
