    This year's price, $202,100, was lower than the $250,100 that a New York investment firm paid for the lunch last year.

    Huh?

    There's no place in Omaha that charges that much for Lunch. Eli Caniglia's by the old Ak-Sar-Ben is a bit pricey for the college students that live nearby, but nowhere near 202k.

    Doncha just love it when the wealthy go looking for a handout? Unless he donates the money to a charity that helps poor people...then I think it's a great idea. If he doesn't, then somebody pass him a bowl of pretzels.

    That (almost) exactly what happens. The winning bidder sends the whole of the payment to the Glide Foundation, a service organization in San Francisco.
