  • Standing in black-and-white jail clothes for his first court appearance Saturday, Sanders quickly interjected, "my wife," when the judge characterized Virginia Sanders as "the victim." He also asked the judge for help after admitting he didn't understand or have "any experience" with the criminal justice system.

    "Excuse me, can I ask you a favor?" George Sanders asked the judge before being taken back to his jail cell. "I'm so cold and I've been so cold. At my age my back is spasming and I can't stop. Could I be given a blanket or two?"


    Damn.
  • Jesus Christ. My parents are getting there. I have no idea what I'd do in a situation like this.
  • If we didn't have such a hang-up over quantity over quality, there would be no stigma over someone ending their own life, so they didn't have to ask a loved one to be merciful and kill them.

    I guess some people think that nobody in their right mind would want to die, and therefore anyone who wants to die is not in their right mind and shouldn't be allowed to make decisions. I guess.

    I think there should, at least, be a way for people to check out. I'm not sure what I think that process should entail, though.

    That would be my point

    It's really odd--the people who tend to be against mercy killing are all for the Death Penalty. That's...odd.

    They want to be In Charge. That's the point - control.

    Tank of helium, a rubber hose and a plastic bag with an elastic draw string. Insert hose into bag, place bag over head, turn on helium. The helium replaces oxygen, but does not cause gasping, you pass out and then die from lack of oxygen.

    Every man dies. Not every man truly lives.
  • It's sad that my dog will have a more humane end when he gets near the end of his days than I will.

    A panel of 3 doctors is all you need. If all three conclude that the person is of sound mind and there's no way to help them they should be allowed to end their life and pain with the assistance of a doctor. Sometimes "do no harm" means not allowing the person to suffer needlessly.
  • He shot her and she didn't die until 2 days later. Why not another method which would not have been so horrific?
  • As much as I sympathize with him and believe there should be legal routes that people like his wife can take and as much as I would like an opportunity to lay into the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office, this was (under the law) unquestionably murder and he should be convicted as such although I hope the sentence will be mitigated somewhat.

    Petition your town today to have one of these installed.

    and against abortion! don't forget that one!

    seriously, poor old guy. If assisted suicide laws were allowed, he wouldn't have had to shoot her. I wonder if the prosecutor will go ahead with 1st deg murder charges?
  • My dad says that he doesn't want to go in a nursing home. If he goes for a walk in the woods and doesn't come back, don't go looking for a week. However, that seems unlikely to me. He's such a tough sumbiatch that he won't give up on living till well after he loses the capacity for walking.

    Plus you sound really funny while telling the tragic story of your horrible life.

    Blowing shiat up to protect blastocysts and ensuring old people live long lives of pain and misery.

    That's pro-life!
