There is new information suggesting that the Donner Party wasn't a huge cannibal feast. I am so relieved to know they weren't eating their dead. I kept thinking about them eating each others’ livers and I’d gross myself out, because I don’t like liver at all. Pate and liverwurst are not delicacies in my world—they are punishment for my taste buds. I just don’t see the point of eating a body part that filters everything; that would be like eating the coffee filter and grounds rather than drinking the java.
