This morning’s news includes a story about some people in Connecticut working on an assisted suicide law.
Wow, hot topic with points being made by both sides on this issue. Personally I think this is a personal decision and should be left to the individual and his/her family. I am one that feels quality of life trumps quantity of life. Some have religious beliefs that support letting a person live on in a state of pain and suffering until they die “naturally”. I have given instructions to my children on my personal desires, whether they follow them or not are out of my control.
Also another possible blow to those with strong religious training is news that scientists at Harvard have found something called gravity waves. Gravity waves are something Einstein suggested as part of his theory of relativity but, never accomplished the goal of finding them or proving they existed.
According to the report these waves are proof of the “big bang” explanation of how it all began. Put that in your thinking cap and mull it for a while. 😉
On another topic…
In a gathering last weekend I mentioned having read somewhere that the United States is the only developed country in the world that still has for profit health care. One member of the group cheerfully said “Yes capitalism that is what it is all about.”
Did not respond, but should have said. Well you better hope that the next time you need medical help the capitalists do not decided it would be more profitable to just let you die.
That’s enough for this sunny day. Have plumbing problems to work on.
