Today's leading inflation indicator

class=img_thumbleft> So you want to have your picture taken with

Dick Cheney

? You could be in luck.

According to the A.P.,

the Veep will spend Friday afternoon at the leafy Wayzata estate of

GOP bigwig Bill Cooper

, where you and your spouse have a chance to pose for a pic with

the handsome devil.

The only hitch: You have to shell out $4,200.

So what worthy cause has inspired Cheney to make this forray to our humble province? Debt relief for Africa? Aid for tsunami victims? Don't be such a chump. Cheney is gracing us with his presence for the same reason he always does: he's on a money grubbing mission for a fellow traveler. In this case, the pimping is on behalf of senate hopeful Mark Kennedy. Naturally, it is an invitation only affair.
