· An article today mentions that she was actually ready to sell until she broke her hip, and then decided to stay because it was too much effort. http://seattlepi.com/local/403025_ballardhouse11.html

· Also I think the ongoing coverage helps cement her folk hero status.Dbratland (talk) 05:04, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Disney Movie UP promotion rumor[edit]

There's a rumor, reported by the SeattlePI.com that helium balloons will be tied to Macefield's house for as publicity for UP.

Property rights in China[edit]

Former Seattle P-I reporter Brad Wong blogging on Edith Macefield's status as property rights folk hero in China. [1] --Dbratland (talk) 01:06, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Another story on Macefield's fame in China. There seems to be confusion as to what Barry Martin's role was.--Dbratland (talk) 01:45, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

2 = 4 ?[edit]

"Edith Macefield (August 21, 1921 – June 15, 2008) achieved worldwide notoriety in 2006 when she turned down US$1 million to sell her home..." "Scriptwriting and production on Up began in 2004, four years before Macefield's refusal to sell to the property developers." How is 2004 "four years before" 2006?
