Jerry Garcia's 'Wolf' guitar sells for $1.9M at New York auction

NEW YORK (AP) -- A guitar that Jerry Garcia played everywhere from San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom to Egypt's Great Pyramids fetched over $1.9 million at an auction Wednesday night.

The Grateful Dead frontman's guitar -- named Wolf -- was sold at the Brooklyn Bowl, a bowling alley, restaurant and music venue. The sale price includes the buyer's premium. The proceeds are earmarked for the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center.

"I've been a fan of The Dead since I was a kid, and playing this iconic guitar over the past 15 years has been a privilege," said Pritzker. "But the time is right for Wolf to do some good."

SPLC President Richard Cohen said the organization is grateful Pritzker "is willing to part with this piece of music history to support the SPLC's mission fighting hate and bigotry."


An anonymous matching donation to the SPLC brought the total amount to $3.0 million.

"Oh, come on! Come oooooon..."

So how long until GoFundMe is our nation's leading health care provider?

Yale Republicans taunt hunger-striking union workers with a barbecue

Earlier this week, eight Yale graduate teachers began a hunger strike to protest the university’s refusal to bargain with their union. Yale’s College Republicans responded by taunting the hunger strikers with smoked meat.

Representatives from the Yale Republicans refused to comment to a reporter from the New Haven Register, which was the first to report this story, before that reporter was removed from the site of the barbecue by campus police.

The underlying dispute between the university and the union involves some fairly novel questions involving how graduate employee unions should be organized. Last August, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recognized that graduate teaching and research assistants may organize and collectively bargain under a federal law protecting unions.

Aaron Greenberg, a political science graduate student and union leader, meanwhile, claims that the university is trying to delay negotiations “until Donald Trump appoints new members of the National Labor Relations Board.”

There's a punchline somewhere in there.
