Aaron Jamison

the verbiage at CNN reads:

Added On April 29, 2010

An Oregon man holds onto his sense of humor even though he has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. KATU reports.

I note that the public health policy dimension, the fact that this man's widow-to-be would be unlikely to face crushing debts in most industrialized countries as a consequence of her husband's health problems, goes unmentioned. Maybe the reporter realizes that in 2014 people will still have these problems, even after Obamacare is fully implemented.

Thanks for posting this Jonathan. I've wondered before if I would really want to know when I was going to die. On one hand if you know you can prepare for it like this brave fellow but on the other I'm not sure how I would deal with the knowledge.

Guess absolutely nothing is safe from advertising--ads on a cremation urn! I just didn't know whether to laugh or cry at this one--guess a combination of both is appropriate, along with a feeling of utter disgust for all kinds of reasons.
