Funeral Held for Right - To - Die Author 9:00 AM ET
ROME (AP) -- Hundreds gathered in a Rome square Sunday to hold a lay funeral for a paralyzed author who died after having a doctor disconnect his respirator and was denied a religious service by the Roman Catholic Church.

Orwellingly Yurz sez: Savor this, if you must. And if you can, please tell me how you're able to.

Oh, Oh, OY!

I think my mind worked on this as yours did, OY. I'm very happy that people have remembered that poor author, and remembered in an appropriate manner and venue as well. And it's so nice to hear the Pope (a former Hitler Youth, and until elected as pontiff, head of the Vatican organization which once was called the Inquisition) speak out against prejudice.
