Beam Me Outta Priceline, Scotty
"I told you this dot-bomb was going to be big, really big."The dot-com fire sale is hitting many former stars and their front men. Take Priceline.com, whose missteps and dot-com carnage bucketed its share price to less than $2. That drop hit Star Trek-famed William Shatneraka Captain James T. Kirkwhose part payment for his "unique" renditions of popular songs netted him 135,000 shares of Priceline stock.
Last year, Shatner told "Larry King Live" that he was going to hold onto his Priceline shares because he thought they were going to skyrocket. (With a little luck, maybe theyd rise faster than "Ludicrous Speed.")
