Morning Brief: November 12
It's not for the faint of heart.

If you're interested in the macabre, be sure to check out the "Art of Mourning" at the Morbid Anatomy Museum. You get a cultural look at how death was handled from the 18th to the 20th century. It has bizarre paraphanelia like death masks and art shadowboxes. The exhibit is open through the beginning of December.
