    Now you can own Dracula’s castle Transylvania's Bran Castle, long connected with Bram Stoker's indelible creation, is for sale. Count Dracula never lived in Bran Castle, in the Transylvania region of Romania, because he was a fictional character. But look, it’s a Gothic-looking castle in Transylvania — plus, Vlad the Impaler, the historical figure who inspired Bram Stoker’s indelible creation, was reportedly imprisoned here. So it’s no surprise that it’s commonly called “Dracula’s Castle,” and that (like Transylvania’s Hunyad Castle and Poenari Castle in Wallachia) it’s often linked with the vampire legend. And now, you can own it. If you...

    Paul Marquez is a 23-year-old New Yorker. He is in jail today, charged with attempting to sell the baby of a woman he dated on Craigslist for $100. He has pled not guilty; a friend says, "he probably did it as a joke." He reportedly faces up to a year in jail if convicted. In Michigan, a woman was captured on video attempting to hire a "hit man" to kill her husband. "It was easier than divorcing him," she explained. The man she tried to hire was an undercover policeman. In a remarkable twist, her husband later testified in court:...

Religious bidders can save Lori's soul through conversion or prayer. Pop culture abounds with examples of people selling their souls to the devil in exchange for money, however, this doesn't seem...

    Gently used submarine base yours for $17.5M (sub not included) Norway is joining a growing trend of governments selling off old infrastructure installations like cupcakes at a bake sale. They've recently listed the Olavsvern Naval Submarine Base on the real estate market, and hope to add a cool $17.5 million to their budgetary bottom line for their efforts. Submarine is not included in the asking price. That's a sure sign times are really tough folks. Since anyone who will buy this base is clearly a gazillionaire that's not likely to stop them. In addition to needing to bring your own...

    Hooters is rattling its cans on Wall Street. The Atlanta-based "breast-aurant" chain -- famous for the scantily clad waitresses who serve up its burgers and spicy wings -- is beckoning prospective buyers, sources told The Post. Hooters has recently shopped itself to a number of private-equity firms as sales have sagged with the recession, sources said. The closely held company, meanwhile, is in advanced talks with a Connecticut-based investor that has been granted certain rights of refusal on any potential transaction, according to one source.

    A luxury Chrysler sedan that President-elect Barack Obama drove before winning the White House is being auctioned off on eBay. Starting bid: $100,000. Tim O'Boyle, the general manager of a restaurant in Hillside, is selling Obama's steel blue 2005 Chrysler 300C Hemi on the Internet auction site, hoping to cash in on history. The price is a cool $1 million under eBay's "Buy It Now" option. "In my mind, it's a one-of-a-kind car," O'Boyle said Wednesday. Obama leased the car in 2004 at Park Plaza Dodge in Forest Park, and swapped it for a Ford Escape Hybrid in 2007. The...

    <p>So, do the rest of you now have some idea of the depth of corruption in Chicago and Illinois, and why some of us were so concerned about electing a president who emerges from this cesspool?</p> <p>There's no evidence to link President-elect Barack Obama to the latest scandal, but the arrest of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich for allegedly trying to sell Obama's now-vacant U.S. Senate seat and engaging in other attempted shakedowns appears to have stunned the nation, judging by the reaction of network anchors and other media. Brazen, appalling, unbelievable, they say. But for those of us who have spent a lifetime covering the news here, it's how it works.</p>

    The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has decried the practice and vowed to reform convention funding, but the Denver Host Committee was facing a budget shortfall.

    (MOUNT LAUREL, N.J.)--Campbell Soup Co. is putting Godiva up for sale, saying the decadent Belgium chocolate does not fit with the company's focus on healthy, down-home foods. The Camden-based company announced Thursday that it has hired Centerview Partners LLC to advise it on what to do with Godiva Chocolatier, which the company has owned for more than 40 years, but says has never fit squarely into any of its main business units. Analyst Mitch Pinheiro, who follows the company for Janney Montgomery Scott, said the company would need to get around $900 million for Godiva to avoid diluting earnings. Pinheiro...

    Even as it tackled a long-term $20 billion gap in funding for the state's school employees, the California State Teachers' Retirement Board found time at its meeting last week to plug another hole: the millions of dollars that firms which handle, or want to handle, pension fund investments have donated to board trustees who are also elected officers. The state treasurer, the controller and the superintendent of public instruction, each of whom by virtue of the office sits as a CalSTRS trustee, all run for election or re-election statewide. That takes money. If they decide to run for higher statewide...
