The Race to Clone Che Guevara is on. Lock of Hair goes up for Auction

You must be kidding. Che Guevara inspired many, but to purchase a 3 inch lock of his hair..come on. Placing all sentiments aside. Who really needs Che's hair? Really? Worse, according to the auctioneers, "they need extra security".
DALLAS: An auction house is putting Che Guevara's hair up for sale Thursday despite alleged threats by fans of the Marxist revolutionary.

Bidding starts at $100,000 (€69,886) for a 3-inch (7.62 centimeters) lock of hair from Ernesto "Che" Guevara whose iconic picture has become a popular commodity since the Argentinian was killed in a Bolivian jungle in 1967.

Heritage Auction Galleries is going ahead with the sale of the hair, allegedly snipped off Guevara before burial, despite alleged threats made against the company by Guevara admirers.

According to Heritage...All bidders for the "dandruff sample" will be properly protected since they have 'extra security'. Who are they afraid of?..Get this...
The Dallas-based auction house said it will have extra security on hand for the bidding after monitoring "leftist bloggers" upset that the company is profiting from Guevara's death.

"(Che) is kind of revered and hated," Heritage spokeswoman Kelley Norwine said. "It's at both ends of the's crazy."

Leftist Bloggers? HA! That is absolutely ridiculous. Yeah sure, 'leftist bloggers' . Read the rest of the bull$hit here. I couldn't.

Same Players. Different Scandal.
