Blago Goes To Disney World

Hey, Rod Blagojevich, a grand jury just handed up an indictment charging you with an attempt to sell President Obama's Senate Seat, where you gonna go? Disney World! The shameless governor was none too pleased when he was caught at the Orlando resort. "He has a right," said a family friend who shooed away a reporter. "Until he's convicted, leave him alone."

A rare 1932 Mickey Mouse Christmas card signed by Walt Disney sold at auction Thursday for $13,987.

The card itself -- addressed to Chicagoan Henry Scherping -- features the original version of Mickey and Minnie Mouse along with a note written less than a month after the cartoonist received his first Oscar.

Disney sent out dozens of these Christmas cards, but this is the first one that has ever surfaced, according to RR Auction spokesman Bobby Livingston.

"After seeing such a high price realized, now I know why one might save a Seasons Greetings card from years past," Livingston said.
