    Just a reminder to aim your distaste toward the sellers, not the venue.

    Doesn't say so much about ebay auctions per se as it does the lows to which some people will go to make a buck or to own something they deem will eventually be worth something.

    But then, if you've got it and you want to make a buck, so what?

    If legal action is to take place, it will be ideal paper evidence (excuse the pun). It stil, shows there are folk who will make money out of anyone's misfortunes.

    i did email these sellers and interstingly enough this is what one had to say..........

    sorry to inform you but i did not print the newspaper and yes this is called news, this is sold at news stands and stores aroud the world. there are papers on 1000,s of differant peoples death and lives (its called news) that you can buy all over not just ebay even the popes the day after he died and thats ones on ebay right now. the problem is people like you that don't have nothing better to do but to go around emailing people they don't even know. you don't know me or my intensions, what are you trying to say that you are grieving more? you care more? i could be a priest selling it for my church, i could be very poor and also need to feed my family. point is what gives you the right to even email me and say anything at all. "shame on you"

    i ticked him off! :chuckle

    marie, i am curious as to what they had to say to you!

    hey this is a piece of typeographical error history. it's not like i am selling pieces of the mine like when 911 occured. you are entitled to your opinion. but i feel no shame in doing this!
