Ronald, in a land where we say it is better for a hundred guilty people to walk free than one innocent to be jailed, we are content to let a hundred people unwillingly suffer the rest of their lives than risk one person be manipulated into accepting euthanasia because: #slipperyslope. As the costs of caring for more and more boomers soar, I fear the response will be encouragement to do a better job of wiping our own chins as we stare vacantly at a world we can no longer process, other than with fragments of old memory.
