Different Strokes to Move the World – In this Life and After

Two people I know (one of them was me) recently read a lengthy article in New York Magazine about “end of life.”

One of us got pretty depressed by that article. The other one (me) took the depressing description of the unnaturally extended life that is likely for many of us as a call to action to live my life to the fullest now, today. And to plan on going out like a firecracker in the end (to paraphrase a favorite author – Robert Heinlein).

While I still don’t understand why assisted suicide is illegal, I think I may be making a good effort during my remaining years to lobby for its widespread acceptance and legality.
