Prices for vintage automobiles soar
The best high-end investment in recent years has been vintage automobiles. Prices for well-kept luxury automobiles from the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s have more than doubled in the past five years, and have risen by 28 percent in the last 12 months alone. Fine art, once considered a safe haven for wealthy investors, dropped 6 percent this year.

Gun permits for blind people
Iowa grants gun permits to blind people. State officials concede that being unable to see what you’re shooting is not ideal, but say that failing to grant the permits would violate the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. Other states do impose a vision requirement or require applicants to take a field test to prove they can hit a target.
