It must be getting close to Halloween


Seattle is now hosting this traveling exhibit called Bodies which is basically a bunch of cadavers cut open in various ways to show a variety of internal systems, organs, etc. Not really my cup of tea, so I wasn't terribly surprised to see that someone was trying to shut it down. Probably some conservative alliance, distraught family members or concerned religious group, right? No. It turns out that the party filing the lawsuit is really just a competitor museum that hosts exhibits on bigfoot, ghosts and UFOs. They are likely just upset because theirs is no longer the freakiest exhibition in the city.

Can you even imagine if someone tried to bring this exhibit to Cincinnati? It would make the Condon/Tobias lawsuit look like some ill-conceived, small-time art project (oh wait, that's what it was).

Isn't museum art now nothing more than "who can piss who off contest"?

It seems to me that if Picasso or Renior were around now, he'd be working for HBO or Miramax.
