The McCourts sold one of their many, many homes

You know you’re in for some good McCourt extravagance porn when a sentence like “The smaller of the two homes — at 8,385 square feet -…” is involved.  That’s all followed by a ton of details about how the McCourts spend more money on housing and lawyers than your city spends on public schools in a year.

And a quick question: the article says that Jamie McCourt paid nearly$20K to convert a regular pool into a saltwater pool.  Can someone who is richer than me explain the appeal of a saltwater pool?  I love the ocean and stuff, but the saltwater, I find, to be a pain in the rear.  If all I want to do is swim — as opposed to walk into a wonderful crashing surf — why do I want a saltwater?

While we’re on the Dodgers, they may have had their most sparsely-attended game in the Los Angels portion of their history yesterday.
