Haha, that was my first thought too. Who buys a house in suburban Detroit in 2012 for $3mil cash?

Though if it is drug dealers, they are probably not too happy that the media is making a point to report that they paid cash. The Feds are probably already looking into it after reading the news stories saying that, lol.

I'm assuming when they said they paid cash, they mean it wasn't financed with a mortgage. I don't think they meant actual physical cash.

I seem to remember from class that the limit for a literal cash transaction was $10k without authorities being notified so yeah, something is up.

Like Toby said, it just means they didn't finance it with a mortgage. It's likely someone who just sold their multi-million dollar home to buy Lidstrom's, unless they have that much lying around in a bank account.

Either way, it doesn't mean they showed up with wheelbarrows full of hundreds, just that they didn't finance it.

I think I'd be scouring nooks and crannies to see if they left anything behind. Can you imagine finding something of value? Or even if it was just sentimental value, like one of the boys' baby books, you could still call him up and tell him you have something of his and you'd like to return it and have a nice chat with him.

Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

You can tell I'm old-fashioned and low-income. I see "8 bathrooms" and think, "Poor Annika! Imagine cleaning eight bathrooms!" I'm sure she had help.
