I'm getting queasy about this body out in the open
One hopes that the rot isn’t setting in yet as Chimpy, the Mannequin, Wimpy and Bubba went to view (and hopefully not smell) JPII’s corpse at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
I can’t be the only person wondering, since the body is not embalmed, whether this open-air peep show is going to start to get rank. Friday’s funeral cannot come soon enough. Not to get all CSI or anything, but do they do anything to a corpse to keep it “stable” for a viewing of this length (aside from embalming)?
