Update 2009.10.05: Well, running for House must sell houses: now that R. Blake Curd has declared his candidacy for U.S. House, his turreted castle is no longer listed on the realty pages. You can look at the old version of the page archived in the Google cache. And just so you know I wasn't blowing smoke, here are some screen shots of the original listing (click each to enlarge).
