My point, exactly. The bone material would still be present, the dress and wig pulled tight by the elastic as the body slowly drained. "Preserved like Evita" is exactly what we wish to remember. We want her to remain eternally at peace, young, beautiful. We also wish her psychiatric issues were alleviated. But the chemistry has to happen. I am certain that someday, somebody will get a writ to open the casket for some purpose, no matter how flakey the reason (Oops, bad pun). Probably to search for Lee Harvey Oswald, but I think what we'd see would be not what we'd hope for. And whether it's in bad taste (Darn, did it again!) or not, it's on our minds, and probably on the majority of MM fans.
Truthfully, the only person who loved her for herself was DiMaggio.
