Craigslist RSS feed scrape

I need a Regex script that will parse out US postal addresses from a Craigslist RSS feed. Sample data looks like this:

[url removed, login to view]

These fields are not standardized on their site, addresses could exist in Title or Description fields. I know you are up for the challenge! The [url removed, login to view] script needs to return as many addresses as possible (as some posts may not be able to find a match) in an array of result objects.

The script also needs to find start and end dates within the text. These would also be in a non-standardized format (Nov 20, 11/20 through 11/22, 11-20-2009, November 20th, Friday 11/20 through Sunday 11/22, etc).

Output would be an array of result objects with the following properties (from each "item" xml node and children):

title

description

start date

end date

address

url to the source post (from "rdf:about" attribute on the "item" node)

additional data source sample:

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/gms/index.rss

Obviously we wont be able to successfully scrape all posts due to the non-standardized user input but hopefully 80% or more will be usable.
