    An Alaska Steal!

    While researching in the US National Archives I came across an image of the check the US used to pay Russia for Alaska. It was $7.2 million or 2 cents an acre. Great deal!

    Just goes to show seven million isn't what it used to be.

    Put a photo on my blog just for kicks.

    By the way, let me know if anyone's selling another 600,000 square miles. I'd be willing to chip in to buy a state or a small island for that matter. Anyone else up for this?

    Yeah, I agree with Bill....Aruba would be my choice, or even a small island close enough that we don't have to worry about hurricane or Chavez !!!!
