Luckiest Man of the Face of the Earth

No not Lou Gehrig, but Duane R. Deason who bought half an acre near Buzzards Point and months later learned the new baseball stadium will be his neighbor. The 38-year-old accountant bought the land for $275,000 and is about to sell it for $8.3 million, according to the Washington Post. That's a 3,000% return on equity. Deason tells the Post: "I got kinda lucky." Uh huh.
