Saint Lenny Sale

This week's objet d'eBay, "To Is a Preposition, Come is a Verb," serves notice that daughter Kitty (actually, Brandy Kathleen) is letting go of the material that binds her to her father, comedic saint Lenny Bruce. For two weeks, the tchochkes of his life that the 53 -year-old has kept since his 1966 passing will be available through auction — details at

The auction is to raise funds for charity, an act of making the world better that the elder Bruce would have approved. No thanks are necessary for the act: just accept the kindness and don't feel it necessary to pry too far into the private affairs of the giver.
