More than 12,000 people have paid $20 this week to see dead bodies. It's a new exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, Fla., "Bodies, the Exhibition." It consists mainly of preserved cadavers with exposed muscles, bones, organs and tendons.

Guest:

Michael Sappol, author of Traffic of Dead Bodies; curator-historian at the National Library of Medicine
