Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production

Bring out your (nearly) dead…

Kevorkian was released today.

Welcome home, buddy.

Dr. Jack Kevorkian released from prison

COLDWATER – Nearly nine years after Jack Kevorkian last challenged medical convention, taunted legal authorities and sought to rewrite the rules on assisted suicide, he walked out of prison quietly this morning.

Looking more gaunt than in the 1990s when he gained international fame as “Dr. Death,” Kevorkian climbed into a car with his lawyer, Mayer Morganroth, and quickly left the Lakeland Correctional Facility to begin two years of supervised release. It was a low-key start for a man whose theatrics and sharp rhetoric once commanded attention to the nation’s death-rights movement.

Well, almost home.

The Doc lives only a mile or two from me. I used to live a couple of blocks from the hospital parking lot where Dr. Demento used to dump his bodies. After that he started leaving them in random hotel rooms around town for unsuspecting cleaning staff to find.

I’ve since moved the next small suburb over. But, if Death Boy decides to start scattering corpses again — I’m sure I’ll be within smelling distance.

Kevorkian also spawned local idiot extraordinaire, lawyer Geoff Fieger, who has since entertained us by losing by the widest margin ever in a Michigan gubernatorial race. He’s a sleazy clown — no surprise that the Michigan dem’s would look to him as their messiah.

I don’t have a problem with the terminally ill finding a dignified and painless way to die peacefully. I’ve watched people that I love die the long way. There’s nothing dignified about it and no one deserves to go through that much pain.

Kevorkian, however, seemed to revel in the ghoulish way he exploited the deaths of his “victims” in order to push his cause.

I, for one, hope that he has the decency to remain “retired”.

A much better doctor — Doctor Wu:

Katy tried

I was halfway crucified

I was on the other side

Of no tomorrow…
