How much per pound?

Watching the news today I had to rewind as a headline flashed up and was gone before I could fully comprehend it! Was I reading it correctly? Woman who got kidney from Craigslist is recovering in Miami hospital! Now I’ve never personally used Craigslist, but when I think about it, I think furniture sales, maybe baby equipment, garden bits and bobs! I certainly have never thought mmm I wonder if Craigslist has any new body organs up for grabs today! All I can think about is desperation…. How desperate do you have to be to start advertising or searching in free ads for something as unique as a matching body part? On the reverse of that, has the economic crisis reached such epic proportions that people are now selling their most prized possessions, actual pieces of themselves? I am pleased to report that apparently both donor and recipient are recovering nicely, but still am I the only one shocked by the sale of human parts on the Internet?

    I’m not shocked. In desperate times people do things we would consider desperate.
