Saw this choice quote from an article on CNN today about the home sales market (emphasis mine):
The latest Census Bureau report shows median prices for new residences sold in December fell 1.5 percent from the previous month to $221,800. Half of the homes sold for more than the median, the rest for less.
Must be a crazy coincidence that half were above median and half below! Thank you, CNN, for reminding us what a median is.
