Thank you, Ana, for sending this:

It gets a bit old by the time it is over, but it is funny. At the event we went to, the bidding started at 50, got to 60 or something, and someone shouted out “500?!?!?” and that was the end.

    Al Fraken’s Fifty State Strategy: The Movie

    Who is Al Fraken? Is he the manufacturer of those “Fraken Crackers” I’ve heard so much about?

    By the way, does anyone know why youtube videos now have this “download video” bug in them????
