That stinks

A mom says she and her ill 1-year-old son were kicked off a Seattle Metro bus — on the way to the doctor’s office, no less — because of the diarrhea-stricken baby’s stinky diaper.

Gee, The Buzz thought Seattle buses always smelled like that.

Speaking of gas pain: Gas prices will fall by up to 15 cents per gallon per week over the next month, oil industry analysts say.

This is excellent news for us drivers —to say nothing of the bill collectors we’ve been stiffing so we can afford to fill our gas tanks.

If you have to ask, you can’t afford it: Madonna’s got her Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $28 million, but don’t bother looking for it on the Multiple Listing Service — she’s one of the rich and famous people using a top-secret, rich-folks-only real estate service to sell their properties away from the prying eyes of the 99 percent.

Other than that, it’s just like any other real estate agency. Oh, except for the gold blazers that are gilded with actual gold leaf.
