Knitting through life.
Um, yes...ironic would be the best word. Not that it will bring an ironic smile to many lips, I guess.
I heard it first on your blog...that is strange. I am reading blogs more than I am reading news stories. But that is very odd. He died of natural causes??
Phew! I thought it said daily dose of ironing!
I don't find it terribly ironic because had he been terminally ill he would have taken his own life in his own suicide. He just happened to pass away.What would've been ironic, to me, is if he had been ravaged by cancer or ALS and DIDN'T take his own life.And Silliyak made me laugh. :)
Ya Silliyak made me laugh too. I had not heard that new either. Well hooray for him I'm glad he made it naturally. Yes ironic.QMM
well i hadn't actually thought about it but yes!smiles, beexoxoxooxox
Maybe a quick passing with little suffering is his reward for having brought the need for human palliative care to the fore. I was never crazy about his personality, but the idea of letting people die with dignity wasn't much part of the conversation until Jack came along.
Or, as the headline in my Star Tribune put it, "...has died without assistance."
According to a report by the Detroit Free Press, 60% of the people who committed suicide with Kevorkian's help were not terminally ill. The report further asserted that Kevorkian's counseling was too brief (with at least 19 patients dying less than 24 hours after first meeting Kevorkian) and often lacked a psychiatric exam, even when Kevorkian had been alerted that the patient was unhappy for reasons other than their medical condition.
