Fox News is reporting (and Wikipedia, crappy source that it is, has apparantly confirmed) that Jack “Dr. Death” Kevorkian has died.  (No word on whether anyone helped him or not.)

Good.  Fucking.  Riddance.

    Ah, the air is cleaner, the sky is bluer, the grass is greener, and the gene pool had a little chlorine dumped into it.

    Marshall Dillon would have hanged the death doctor.

    I was a one-time hospice volunteer. The purpose of volunteers is to build relationships with the dying as an important ingredient to finding meaning in the last stages of life. Suicide is the opposite – it rejects hope for meaning at the end of life, and seeks a quick exit.

    Here’s something that may have escape a lot of people’s attention: many of Kevorkian’s victims were not terminally ill.

    On another note…long time ago I concocted a list of alternate state theme songs. At the time Kevorkian was still prominent in the news. For his home state of Michigan I picked “Don’t Fear the Reaper.” Now I’ll just go with something auto related.

    If anyone has ideas, I still lack songs for Illinois, New Jersey, North Dakota, and Rhode Island. Any suggestions welcome. (And for the int’l list, I have second thoughts about Zep’s “Baby I’m Gonna Leave You” for Taiwan. “Breakdown Dead Ahead” for Pakistan was quite prescient.)
