Blood of the Gipper

The San Jose Mercury news reports that a vial of 40th US President Ronald Reagan's blood is up for auction. Reputedly, the blood was taken from a lab in Maryland, with permission, after the infamous 1981 assassination attempt.

This doesn't sit well with the people managing Reagan's foundation:

The plan has provoked an angry response from John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation.

"If indeed this story is true, it's a craven act and we will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase," he said in a statement. "We've spoken to GW (George Washington) Hospital and are assured an investigation as to how something like this could possibly happen is underway.

Imagine what you could do with a vial of Ronald Reagan's blood? I would create a clone army and establish an empire.
