Real Estate for Eternity

Timing is everything in humor--and likewise, I think, is placement.

The Los Angeles Times put this in its Sunday Real Estate "From Our Blogs" section, in between a piece on foreclosure law and one on new home sales statistics:

"For $750,000, it's yours for eternity."

The story? A real estate agent, bless his shameless little heart, is offering a mausoleum (sleeps six forever) at Forest Lawn in Glendale for three-quarters of a million dollars.

A selling point: your neighbors are Hollywood's biggest stars...though, they're dead so it's not like you'll be invited over for a party.

BTW, the 1932 entrance gates to Forest Lawn Glendale, according to their website, are "the largest wrought iron gates in the world. " That should make you feel better about spending $750,000, right?
