"Hear, hear. Have said this for years. European schools with far more recess and far less testing, like Finland, turn out underemployed, booze-raddled adults who can quote Tolstoy and Shakespeare.
That said - I'm for assisted suicide. Why not?…"

" I don't see why people and lawmakers are so opposed to euthanasia. It's been allowed in European countries for years. America needs to catch up with the rest of the world in this matter and many others too.
"I will never die because whoever earns the title "U.S. Marine" never gets the order to die. That's what my DI said anyway.
I'm not afraid to die, but I am afraid to stop living.
Illegitimi non carborundum"
"Canada is currently engaged in that debate. A lot of people want euthanasia to be legal. Québec is treating it as legal because their position is that our constitution doesn't bar it. It'll certainly happen here sooner or later.…"
