CSI San Bernardino - no, not a TV show, a museum piece

I work in the biometrics industry, and my employer actually provides tools used by crime scene investigators - although said tools aren't quite as sexy as the TV shows make them out to be.

If you want to learn what CSI work is really like, go to the San Bernardino County Museum on Wednesday, July 22, at 7:30 pm.

How much of what you see about forensics on television is good science and how much is just entertainment? David Van Norman, a San Bernardino County Deputy Coroner Investigator and Unidentified-Missing Person Coordinator, will compare what we see on TV with reality in his lecture, “CSI San Bernardino: Myth vs Reality,” at the San Bernardino County Museum on Wednesday, July 22 at 7:30pm. This guest lecture is free to the public.

More here. Presumably this is not for people with sensitive stomachs.
