Turn of Phrase - Selling Ronald Reagan's Blood

The vial of blood and accompanying
document from GW University hospital.
"I was a real fan of Reaganomics and felt that President Reagan himself would rather see me sell it rather than donating it."

- From the anonymous owner of a vial of blood purportedly drawn from President Reagan immediately after the failed assassination attempt of March 30, 1981. 

The sanguine sample is currently being sold by a British auction house, with the highest bid to date at $15,000.

It's nice to see the owner of the vial assuming personal responsibility for his own financial success, rather than waiting on some theoretical "trickle down" of wealth that will probably never come.
