One of my favorite books is “Enders Game” and while the movie was only adequate it did have a great line by the Sergant-At-Arms:


Yes, after more than two years away, it is once agin election season and I am now awake, and I start with something that I am passionate about but may make you uncomfortable: “Death With Dignity”

As I just wrote to the LA Times:

” . . . life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”

Life: life includes the death of oneself and ones loved ones

Liberty: includes the right to choose how one lives life, and, how one dies

The Pursuit of Happiness: difficult to pursue when forced to take debilitating medical treatments or strapped to a machine artificially prolonging ones life

How appropriate that on the anniversary of 9/11, a day in which life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness was stolen from more than 3,000 people, the California Senate restored those rights by passing a bill allowing all of us to choose the time, place and method of our own passing. Thank you.

Sign the bill Governor Brown. Sign the bill.

So, on the Presidential front: Bush v. Clinton or Trump v. Sanders? Should be an interesting season on the campaign trail!
