Signs the Economy is Bad

When Nicolas Cage has to sell his bavarian castle:

The global recession has forced American actor Nicolas Cage to tighten his purse strings and sell his sumptuous castle in Bavaria, in southern Germany.

“Due to the difficult economic situation, unfortunately, I was no longer able to keep it,” the 45-year-old told German celebrity weekly Bunte.

Cage, whose mother has roots in Bavaria, bought the 28-room Neidstein castle with 165 hectares of forest and gardens two years ago, reportedly paying $US2.6 million for the property, which dates back to the 16th century.

I didn’t know he had a bavarian castle. I thought he was more the crystal-fortress-in-arctic type. I guess that’s what he gets for doing The Wickerman.
