Down and Dirty

The price of a particular, peculiar piece of Colorado real estate is dropping through the floor. Back on September 23, 2004, in Home Security, we told you of an unusual home-ownership opportunity: a circa 1960, 50,000 square-foot missile-silo complex out on the former Lowry Bombing Range, as well as the 210 acres around it. And all that suspicious ground beneath it.

The price then was just under $1.5 million, but it's just been cut to $1.2 million, and it could drop again.

Still, an opportunity like this only comes along once in a lifetime. Or is that after-lifetime?
