Annie Oakley's Stuff

http://www.businessweek.com/ap/2012-06/D9VAVD500.htm

Heritage Auctions sold a bunch of Annie Oakley's goodies over the weekend, about half a million dollars' worth.

It got me to thinking (because things are slow at work today) that if I had a famous ancestor whose stuff I inherited, would I be willing to auction it off? Most of me says no, but there's that little part of me that keeps looking at my 401(k) and thinks that it would be a nice boost. But, since I'm not related to anybody famous (or infamous), it's a moot point.

Half a million. Whew.
