Makeshift Living Will

One positive thing that'll come out of Tom DeLay & Co. wagging the poor Schiavo lady in Florida (why is it always Florida?) to appease their nutter brethren is that more people will think about getting a living will to spare their families the agony of having to decide whether or not to pull the plug. I should do this myself, but it's one of those things you wind up putting off because it costs money and it's not exactly fun to think about.

So in lieu of an actual living will, in case something horrible happens to me and I wind up vegetative with no reasonable hope of recovery, my wish is to be unplugged, detubed, heroically dosed with morphine and left to die naturally with Pet Sounds playing on some headphones. Don't know if this'll hold up in court, but hell, it's free and worth a shot.
