Lunch with Katrina vanden Heuvel Can Be Yours For The Price of a Modest Used Car

How much would you pay for a little face time with Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation? What about lunch at the Union Square Café with her?

Well, if the current bids on The Nation’s First Ever Online Auction are any guide, it’ll cost you upwards of $2,500, but really, according to the description of the item, its estimated value is “priceless.”

Other items for sale include a signed copy of Victor Navasky’s A Matter of Opinion and original art by Edward Sorel and George Shreiber.

There’s also an autographed DVD of John Cusack’s Mark Leyner-cowritten movie War, Inc. that’s currently at $80, perfect for that Halliburton-hating, Military-Industrial-Complex dismantler on your Holiday gift list.
