Organs, Cadavers, Communists, and a Canadian blogger

The folks at the "Bodies" exhibit are so incensed that some have dared to question whose organs and other parts the Communists sent to them that the director is resorting to the use the courts to silence them. 

One can only wonder if such threats extend across the pond and into the blogosphere (ninth and tenth items).

Dear China e-Lobby:

I know I'm going out on a limb here, and maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, but I get the feeling you're not too crazy about the Chinese Communists.

Just a hunch.

A reasonable question to ask ...Are these remains evidence of legal violations?
Should be proven one way or another!

The exhibit is disgusting, it is not art. The exhibitors are carrying out an indignity to a dead body - that used to be a chargeable offence in Canada, but it is obviously not an offence anymore since the same kind of display took place at the Ontario Science Centre a while ago.

Some might argue that the show is educational - those people should discover books. If the inside of corpses are such a great education about our bodies - then how about performance art that shows us how we can use our bodies? Exhibitors could hire prostitutes to demonstrate vaginal, oral and anal sex perhaps?

China treats and slaughters its people like cattle, it's hard to believe that in a socially conservative society these corpses were volunteers who died of natural causes, though it is possible, we are talking about China.
