Che's hair for sale

This piece from the CBC talks about a CIA operative who is going to auction off a lock of Ernesto "Ché" Guevara's hair along with other paraphernalia that was present at the revolutionary's death 40 years ago in Bolivia.
"It's time for me to put the past behind and pass these on to someone else," said Villoldo.
Yeah, and give his pension a boost.

If you're interested in the hair, or the fingerprints, a map, photo of Ché's body, and intercepted messages before his capture, the auction is in Dallas on October 25 & 26.

Since Che was responsible for the death of Villoldo's father among many, many others, what's so wrong? The whole story is at ha.com
