Anyone got a cool $250 million lying around?

From Liz Smith in the NY Post:

'I'M AS corny as Kansas in August!" sings Nellie Forbush.

THE FAMED Rodgers & Hammerstein Music Publishing business, run by Ted Chapin, has put itself on the market for a mere $250 million. This seems like as good a time as any, what with R&H a hit again at Lincoln Center in the brilliant revival of just one of their famous musicals, "South Pacific."

But Chapin isn't selling his other gold mine - the music of Irving Berlin.
