Insert stupid "hair" pun here

Michael Medved just read this and everybody else in the universe probably had it up hours ago, but I cut it out of the Denver Post at Common Grounds this morn (we leftists aren't big on private property, maaaaaaan) and I'm gonna post it:

Bidder has lock on Che's hair

A hair lock snipped from Ernesto "Che" Guevara before his burial in 1967 sold for $100,000 at auction Thursday to a Houston-area bookstore owner who called the Marxist "one of the greatest revolutionaries of the 20th century." Bill Butler, 61, won the 3-inch tress clipped from Guevara's mane after placing the only bid, which matched the reserve price. Butler said he was a collector of 1960s icons.
I'd rather have Ty Cobb's teeth (scroll down).

Update: "Lobotomies Last Forever: The Tim McCarver Story." I'd read it. Slowly.
