Better than a head. My grandfather was a pathologist and among my the items I inherited from him was a box of hundreds of 3"x3" glass slides. The box is labeled "Tumors of the Male Genitalia" I'm using it as a book end. Is there an artist who thinks they can make use of it?

(06-04) 21:15 PDT HAYWARD, CALIF. -- A woman was struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Hayward on Thursday after the dog she was walking pulled her into its path, just hours after a man jumped in front of another Amtrak train in Berkeley, authorities said.
The woman was walking a pit bull terrier on Blossom Way about a mile north of the Hayward station around 2:15 p.m. The dog's owner, an 18-year-old man rode a bicycle around the crossing arms as the train approached, said Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson. The dog apparently began following its owner and pulled the woman into the train's path, Nelson said.
Both the woman and the dog died when they were hit by a Capitol Corridor train headed from Sacramento to San Jose, said Amtrak spokeswoman Vernaé Graham.
