Kevin T. shares the following item from today’s Chicago Sun-Times and gossip maven Michael Sneed.

An unknown gentleman bid $9,000 for Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy to come to his house, hang out and play a couple of songs. Tweedy was auctioned off as part of the third annual “The Second City That Never Sleeps: Letters to Santa” benefit, which provides gifts for needy kids. It featured Second City alums and Chicago rocker Billy Corgan.

Says Kevin, “word has it Nash Kato fetched almost $2.45.”

I think that’s quite unfair, and suspect it would take at least $20 to rouse National from his winter hibernation. And I’d do it (and more) for a lot less.
