Science Non-fiction

Hugh Hewitt's article, "Death by Committee" in the Weekly Standard addresses the biggest news story NOT reported in the Left-Stream Media. Froggy Ruminations ponders what will happen when government health care intersects with government sanctioned "mercy killing". I am reminded of two movies from the 1970s. Logan's Run takes place in a world where everything is perfect, until you turn thirty. In Soylent Green, human life has become so cheap that euthanasia is encouraged. They also take the idea of Reduce, Re-use, Recycle a bit too far. In light of the news from the Netherlands, these movies don't seem as futuristic as they once did.
