UpdateFilter: Schiavo autopsy results --contrary to those who used this poor shell of a woman as a political football and fundraiser, Schiavo was not abused, was blind so could not possibly have seen a balloon or her loved ones, and had a brain half the normal weight that was massively and irreversibly damaged. previous posts here--and just one example of the many many lies printed about her and her husband here. Some people should really be ashamed of themselves.

body world exhibition

Previously discussed here, the Body World exhibition in, London, Brick Lane is hosting what is to be the last publicly performed autopsy before they are banned. I've seen the exhibition and felt that it was done very well, but I'm not sure ill be attending the autopsy with as much haste. Macabre voyeurism or lay man intrigue? Its being rumored that is may also be televised on channel 4

The Autopsy

The Autopsy -- a behind-the-scenes look at the hidden and disturbing world of autopsies from Methylsalicylate. 'The work swallows you, tact is right out the window, and you find yourself discussing decapitation over lunch, laughing. Someone points out that your blood oranges-and-balsamic vinegar salad looks like a tub of organs. You laugh some more. It is well known that your colleagues will die young; that's the way it is. You do not think about who will have to do their autopsies.'
