#1 Foundation fights 'craven' auction of vial purportedly containing Reagan's blood05-22-2012, 11:45 AM
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation is fighting to stop a British company from auctioning off a vial it claims contains the dried blood of late President Ronald Reagan.
The item is up for sale on the website of PFC Auctions, and by Tuesday morning the bid was approaching $12,000. The auction is set to run until Thursday.
"If indeed this story is true, it's a craven act and we will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase," foundation director John Heubusch said in a written statement.
The auction site claims the vial was originally obtained by a woman working at a lab in Columbia, Md., in 1981, at the time Reagan was shot by John Hinckley Jr. "Her lab did the bloodwork and testing for President Reagan," the site says.
The woman, who died in 2010, kept the vial -- and her son is now trying to sell it.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
