TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 19 - There are skinless cadavers sliced in two,
tarred human lungs in glass cases, dehydrated brains you can
touch. One corpse is posed as a soccer player, balancing on one
foot and exposing the complex connection of bones, tendons and
muscles.

Shrugging off recommendations from a state medical board and the Florida attorney general, this city's Museum of Science and
Industry opened this educational exhibition of human corpses and
body parts on Thursday, two days earlier than planned. By the
second day, the show, "Bodies: The Exhibition," had drawn about
3,600 visitors.

"Our main reason for opening early was that we've been inundated with calls and e-mails," said Candace Street, a museum
spokeswoman. But given the opposition of state officials, it was
clear that the museum wanted to admit as many visitors as quickly as possible - ticket price, $19.95 - in case Florida authorities moved to close the exhibition.

Guys who are called Gunther should be locked up for preventive purposes.
