Oh, Kris, you'll get better! Do me a favor, though, keep it down there in Montana! I've so far made it through the winter and into spring without the flu or a cold. Touch wood!

It is my wish that these boneheads mind their own damn business, and pay attention instead to the health, education and Future of the millions of Americans who aren't in a permanent coma

They have their nose in all this way to much now. Why do so many peole judge the gov by what they do and not by what they keep their nose out of?

The funny thing is that the so-called "conservatives" have their nose in it as bad as or worse then the liberals.

What I can't understand is why each state has to have their own version of a living will. You'd think that could be standardized like railroad tracks.

I don't recall a big court case, political debate, or media blitz over anyone who was in a "permanent coma".
