The NY Daily News is polling its readers. Sadly, I’m not surprised by these results (as of 6 am), though support has gone down considerably since Father Z linked to it:

  1. Just as a duck is a duck and a rose by any other name, is still a rose, murder is still murder. Euthanasia is being integrated into our society through emotional black-mail. Just as in the movies, where an anti-hero is given such an unsympathetic character, so that when he gets his brains blown out, you feel compelled to cheer, this man’s story is designed to evoke your emotions of sympathy, so much so that you feel he is not wrong in blowing his wife’s brains out.
