McDonald - who recently sold just two of the documents for $52,000 to the University of South Carolina, where Greener also studied and taught - is threatening to torch the rest unless Harvard offers him more cash.

Wonder where he learned that tactic?

I think you're getting a little too worked up over this. Noone is killing children. The guy in TFA wants to send his children to college.

I think it's messed up that he can own these documents after finding them on the job, but if they are legally his, there's no point in getting all outraged at someone who wants to destroy his own property.

Allow me to present another argument:

Put it on ebay. I know one rich Harvard grad and community organizer who could use some rolling papers.

TheMega: So he can sell just two of the documents for $52,000 and is insulted with $7500 for everything else including the diploma (which I would think would be a centerpiece of the display).   Yeah.... I'm going to have to go with burning the damned things before letting those greedy bastards even touch them.

Reaaaaally? Burn them all. So if you had a car worth $52K and were selling it and somebody offered you $7.5K for it you'd burn the car? You wouldn't.... oh I don't know... look for another buyer? Hold onto it until someone made a more reasonable offer? You'd just torch your car because someone tried to low ball you? That's really what you would do?
