The Carnival of the Vanities is sore this week, though not as sore as I'd be if I had to make the payments on this house on 260th Street in Covington, Washington. (And actually, I'm kind of shocked that they'd slap a house this size on a lot of less than 5000 square feet; the whole parcel would fit in my back yard.)

"Hello, National Enquirer? Are you hiring psychics?"
We have a lot of that kind of thing around here. Big houses, postage stamp lots. Something about urban growth boundaries and preserving farm land for farming.
What's the point of having a yard at all if the entire thing could be "mowed" with a weedwhacker when it would take longer to get the thing out and ready than it would to do it?
