'Doonesbury' auction strikes out

A Portland parent planed to auction three original Doonesbury comic strips Friday to benefit budget-strapped schools in Portland (Garry Trudeau, Doonsebury's creator, is from Portland). The toons for sale were original drawings from the strips that lampooned the Oregon budget crisis.

The thing was, nobody showed up to the auction (at least, no bidders). And to quote Rob's Site where I got this link, "What kind of signal does this send about public support of the tax for schools?" A very poor one, in my opinion.
