    I hope he doesn't suffer. That was really his point. They are now using his invention for the death penalty. His invention is a lot more reliable than the electric chair. Whether you believe in the death penalty or not his invention was the most humane way to end the life of someone who was found guilty in a court of law, of taking the life of someone else.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    IMO He's a true hero. I am hoping he lives long enough to see euthanasia legal

    I hope I can find a Dr. Jack if I am dying in pain and no hope of recovery. I do not want my son and grandson to witness me dying inch-by-inch as I had to with my father (cancer).

    From the Detroit Free Press:

    "Dr. Jack Kevorkian — embraced as a compassionate crusader and reviled as a murderous crank — died early this morning."

    <snip>

    "His attorney, Mayer Morganroth, said it appears Kevorkian suffered a pulmonary thrombosis when a blood clot from his leg broke free and lodged in his heart."

    The passing of Dr. Kevorkian was just breaking on local news when I was leaving the house this morning. Here's are some additional links to local news features:

    R.I.P. Jack Kevorkian

    Although your hero status was not recognized to its fullest in your lifetime, it will indeed be one day...and I think you lived and died, knowing this.

    Thank you for your contributions, your perseverance, and the personal sacrifices you made for the benefit of us.

    Public Funeral

    Dr. Kevorkian was originally supposed to have a private burial, but many people wanted to be able to attend. There will now be a service that is open to the public. White Chapel is just a few miles from my home, but I'm not sure that I will attend as I think it will be very crowded.

    Dr. Kevorkian Laid To Rest

    Last Updated: June 10. 2011 11:02AM

    Kevorkian remembered as 'true believer' in assisted suicide crusade

    Francis X. Donnelly/ The Detroit News

    Troy— Jack Kevorkian was remembered today for his single-minded devotion to an issue that consumed and bedeviled him for half a century.

    While he fell short of seeing assisted suicide legalized nationally, he changed how society deals with end-of-life issues by raising awareness of them, his supporters said.

    "If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't be talking about it," said Maria Sykes, 59, a Flat Rock insurance agent who attended Kevorkian's funeral today. "He made us think about it."

    Sykes was one of 200 people atthe funeral serviceat White Chapel Cemetery. A private burial will be held later today...
