Horror house

I mentioned this on my MSNBC.com Weblog, Test Pattern, but thought I'd link it here as well. The Clutter family home in Holcomb, Kansas, where the entire family was murdered in 1959 in the crime that inspired Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood," is for sale.

It looks like a lovely, cozy home, but I don't know anyone who would live there for love or money. I don't believe in ghosts, but if there were any, here they'd be. (Link via Zelda.)

I could not live there--the book and movie creeped me out.

There are quirky people who will buy and live in houses that have been the scenes of gruesome murders. You have to wonder, though, how many times in the last 47 years that house has been bought and sold, and why.

The best part is that it's being handled by Faulkner Real Estate, just in case your homebuying experience needs a little Southern Gothic injected into the notorious mass murder scene.

I would think the ad would be more effective if it mentioned, say, a state-of-the-art home security system.
