Sale of eruption souvenir pulled after public pressure
HONOLULU - The lava's not even cold yet and people are already trying to make money off it.
This is an old Facebook posting from the page of Loren V. Ayresman. Saturday, the page is down, but on Wednesday, there was a post selling a "fresh piece of Leilani Estates" lava, which is even described as "glittery."
He directs interested buyers to e-bay. By Saturday, though, the post was down. He said, "In Respect to my friends who object to my E-Bay Ad.. No Disrespect was intended.. Am Pulling It [sic]."
