Only in Texas: City saves house where Oswald kept gun

City taxes hard at work...
IRVING -- A Dallas suburb has agreed to pay $175,000 for the house where Lee Harvey Oswald stored the rifle used to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.

The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that the sum the Irving City Council agreed to pay is far more than the $84,000 value the Dallas Central Appraisal District lists for the property.

But Mayor Herbert Gears told the newspaper it's worth it because the house is a piece of history. The city has not yet decided what to do with the house.
