9:26 AM I thought it was a joke at first, but seeing that it’s not, it just seems cruel. From article:

…43-year-old school teacher Tim Donaldson received his $618 rebate check from the Internal Revenue Service Tuesday, and then immediately burned it to provide warmth for his wife and two sons…

“I just want to thank the government for sending such a large check. It burned for quite a while.” Donaldson, who could not afford matches or fuel to light the check, said he made do by placing the envelope’s clear plastic address window at an angle underneath the sun to spark the initial flame, which his family then huddled around until they fell asleep.
