Hillsborough Morgue: Good place for a stiff drink?



In these tough financial times, Hillsborough County commissioners are looking for creative ways to bring in some dough. Like selling the old morgue, for instance.

The medical examiner's office is moving. The old digs are located near the St. Pete Times Forum. Maybe the new owners of the Tampa Bay Lightning might want to partner on a team store and split sales proceeds, Commission Chairman Ken Hagan suggested during a budget workshop Thursday.

Hey, it's already got coolers. Why not another bar?
