After 8 and a half years in prison, Dr. Jack Kevorkian will be free indeed. "Dr. Death" was responsible for hundreds of a assistant suicide patients. In Michigan it is illegal to assist someone for suicide. What's Dr Death going to do? Any comments.

According to what I've read so far, he's just going to keep a low profile, visit some relatives and not push assisted suicide as much as he did in the 90's.

It's hard to keep a movement going, when the movement's participants die off, one by one, I guess.

It happened to Ham Radio.=)

Hey, former WB2OHS (whiskey bravo two oscar hotel sierra, and I can still do it in Morse if you like) resents the insinuation.

With Kevorkian - correct me if I'm wrong - "the movement's participants [dying] off, one by one" is what got him in trouble in the first place.

Perhaps he'll commit suicide? After all, he's in poor health allegedly. Or maybe he'll finally go all out and buy Chrysler once and for all. Oh wait, that's KERKORIAN. I get my Armenians mixed up sometimes...carry on.

I refused to serve him his damn seasoned french fries when he used to come into the bar I worked in. I would often chat with Fieger, hes an alright guy. (I mean, his brother freakin sings "My Sharona", thats gotta be good for a LITTLE street cred..)

My boss laughed and went and dropped the fries in front of him. Jack started his assisted homicide shit in the apartment that was above the bar in the Sullivan Building.

Anybody ever see Jacks paintings ? WHOOOOOOO !

Heres one from the PBS site


JACk


http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/kevorkian/aboutk/art/raised.html

and Jacks commentary on this image:

The annual resurrection by dumb bunnies of a pathetic, despairing, almost scorned image of the purported divinity is hardly noticeable amid the tawdry paraphernalia of irresistible paganism at its vernal orgy. It is a spectacle badly conceived, badly manipulated, and superbly desecrated by those hare-brained disciples of Mammon, who, with armfuls of brilliant multi-colored eggs and gleeful joy, framed in parade-stopping millinery, might, in a rare pseudo-pious mood briefly condescend to acknowledge some sort of disquieting mystery pervading it all. Such is the perfunctory Easter of modern western society which seems to have lost appreciation for anachronisms like rods and staffs and angels and lambs.

Death is coming all right, he's 79 years old.

He should locate a fishing pole and a stream and enjoy what's left of his life.

You refused to serve him his french fries because he assisted people that could no longer bare their terminal illness?

Sorry about that. I'm not a huge fan of him either. He used to stay at a home of Figers' on the street I used to live on. It was on a lake, and sometimes when we were out fishing we would watch him shoot at the geese in his back yard with some form of rifle. It's a wonder no one called the cops on him. Strange man.

I think hes an ass, and he is a shiiiiiiiiity tipper. So yeah, I said FU. Better than what most waitresses do to your food when they dont like you .

Assisted suicide is one thing, but must be legislated. Dont you remember when he was trying harvest organs in the van ? Hes nobody to rally around.

Personally I dont think abortion is too cool, but I hate the people that camp outside the clinics on 8 mile road every damn day. Go pass a law and leave those people alone. Theres a way to do stuff, and a way not to do stuff.

Like spitting in someone's food because you don't like them? Or refusing to serve a patron because you don't believe in their principals? What are you, 1950's Montgomery? Jesus, get over yourself.

For Christmas one year, my bitchy sister gave me one heck of a present........ a gift certificate for Dr. Kevorkian services.

Does this not warrant me to give her the silent treatment? I think so........ Jane

We made up a shot in college called a "Kevorkian". Can't exactly remember what kind of booze was in it, but basically, it put your lights out.

"Jesus, get over yourself."

Yeah, whatever, just telling it like it is.

And be nice to your server next time you go to a restaurant pal. Just some good advice from a former insider. (I never harmed anybody's food)

Southofeight, you need to read the book 'Fight Club'. Its got a lot of pages, so perhaps you could just rent the movie.

Larry - I saw Fieger talking bout Jack today on the news. Hey - havent I seen you, perhaps on the wideopen site ? lol

Yeah, Feiger's not his mouthpiece anymore. I guess he was working on commission.

He's still all over my TV.

Nothing like a jail cell to remind people that they are not above the law. I think Dr. K. is just glad to be a free man again. He'll stay clean.

Uhmmm, excuse me? This is K8CPA, and I'm proud to say, that I am a Amateur Radio Operator, thank you very much.

Admittedly, I'm not happy that the FCC decided to do away with the code, But that doesn't make it a bad hobby.

Yes, you already sound like the sort of person that would not like the code being eliminated.

Every other country in the world doing it years ago may not be a good enough reason for you.

You would prefer to see the hobby die out, instead.
Can't have those CB'ers on there, now can we?

I too, am a lifelong Ham. You can find me on 3885 Khz AM, sounding like Voice of America with my potent, water-bourne signal, and bashing Republicans against the Birchers and bitter neocons on there.
And welcoming the new licensees with open arms.
The ones that will keep the hobby alive.
In spite of the best efforts of those like yourself.=)

Well, forget all of you...I am a huge fan of his. Not because of the assisted suicide thing, but because of other things.

I read an article one day where he was trying to get a law passed where people on death row were allowed to donate their organs. They interviewed people who needed a heart or a liver, etc. They said they didn't care if it came from someone on death row, or whatever. Jack was trying to get the law passed, but the law states that they cannot. Hearing those people's stories really hurt...

So say what you want about Jack. American people act like they have such big morales. Come on now. It's okay though to kill innocents because we are in a so called "WAR", but everything else is immoral. Give me a break.

This just pisses me off. Sorry, had to vent. Morales my ass!!!!!!!

Anyone go to that Knack show at St. Andrews a few (has it been ten?!) years ago? I think Feiger was campaigning at the time and Jack was there, too. The concert really wasn't all that well attended so there was a lot of space to mill around center/front stage and Geoff was down there for the entire show so we ended up hanging out with him and yucking it up for most of the show. He's ok by me. Got to meet Jack that night, too. Good times.

Where was it I'd seen Jack's artwork hung once? Not to my taste but worth a look for sure. Watching him on Larry K. right now.
