So Far, Only One Person Wants to Have a T-Bone With T. Boone For a Good Cause

The Wall Street Journal wonders why there's been just a single bid on the opportunity to power-lunch with T. Boone Pickens, who's selling an eat-and-greet at Nick and Sam's to raise dough for Big Brothers Big Sisters. The auction opened Monday, and thus far only "9***a" has made an offer -- for the minimum asking price of $100,000. Wonders the Deal Journal blog, the slim Pickens raises "questions about investors' appetite for an expensive power lunch in the middle of the credit crunch." Bidders must be pre-approved, so only serious takers are welcome. And fret not: The auction's open till February 12, so there's still plenty of time for folks to fork out the long green necessary to talk alternative fuels over Maine Lobster Mac-n-Cheese.
