Controversy may have attended the opening of Body Worlds in February, but whatever ruckus we heard in Chicago has nothing on the hullabaloo currently going down in Tampa, Florida, where a similar exhibit is set to open on Saturday: a state board ruled this afternoon that it's illegal. While the attorney general says the show can go on, the Sunshine State never seems to shy away from uproar, so who knows. You, though, you've got until Labor Day to enjoy your rights as an Illinoisan and see the plasticized corpses on parade at the Museum of Science and Industry.
