Its weird....do you guys here when someone tried to sell 1 of their kidneys on there? Honest they tried. Ebay took it off but the auction went up to like 1 million dollars...all these people on transplant lists where bidding on it! It was pretty sad that someone would do that.

Hatchet I know, but I think it might be a little too early to try to make money off of the mans death. Dont you agree?
I don't think that it is ever wise to make money off of one's death, especially this one.

Well, they are trying to sell a casket that looks like Regan's. Maybe some people have looked at his casket and think, that would be something worthy of my mother and want to spend money on something like that for the person that gave life to them. Perhaps the seller has some of these caskets lying around wanting to sell them for the sake of selling them, not because they want to make a fast buck from Regan's expense. But they are using the exposure to get the word out. And you have to admit - as expensive as that casket is, it is beautiful.

Yea, it's the same MODEL of casket, not the same casket. I'm pretty sure the U.S. government wouldn't just 'rent' or 'borrow' a casket for the ceremonies. They are, however, using Reagan to advertise their product. Although the intention is not completely wrong, I think the wording in the sale makes it untasteful, and somewhat misleading.
