Speak for yourself, Zeke

Just as I’ve been basking in the warm afterglow of turning 76, now comes 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel, brother of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, to tell me I’d be better off dead, and so would society. In a highly controversial essay that appears in the October 2014 edition of The Atlantic, “Why I hope to die at 75,” Emanuel states his case for death at 75. If he were just some kook on the margin of society, we could dismiss his views without further fuss.However, Dr. Emanuel is anything but marginal, especially when it comes to health care issues.
