Well, who wouldn't want to buy San Quentin?

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is putting California's oldest prison up for sale. Or he's considering it. The LA Times is reporting the governor is looking to sell the prison along with many other state properties to help deal with the state's budget crisis.

In addition to San Quentin, properties reportedly on the block include the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Orange County Fairgrounds, and the Cal Expo in Sacramento (where the state fair is held).

According to the proposal, sale of the properties would bring in between $600 million and $1 billion but wouldn't be realized for a couple years. It's still small change when compared to the state's $15.4 billion deficit.

Who would buy the prison? For the discriminating homeowner it could be a dream purchase.
