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.
