not only did someone pay $4 million for it. . . the final selling
price was $7.4 million. geesh.
rocker turns out to be a wuss after
all. (i refuse to entertain the notion that he may be smart or have some
common sense.) but look at all the trouble he is causing for shea stadium:
10 times the normal number of cops will be on hand, and they reinforced
the dugout roof. wow. should've just let him ride the train.
sotheby's is auctioning off
the original declaration of independence on-line. bidding opened at $4
