Jack Kevorkian, the audacious doctor who spurred on the national right-to-die debate with a homemade suicide machine that helped end the lives of dozens of ailing people, died Friday at a Detroit-area hospital after a brief illness. He was 83.
Jack Kevorkian built his suicide machine with parts gathered from flea markets and stashed it in a rusty Volkswagen van.
Could smoking reefer and having risky sex with hookers be the solution for an economic crisis? That's what a prominent Midwestern Democrat thinks. This "sin solution" exposes a desperate attempt to distract voters from the fact that a morally bankrupt Democratic Party is driving the nation over a cliff.
The Oscar-winning director and screenwriter of "The Hurt Locker" have asked a federal judge to dismiss an Iraq war veteran's lawsuit alleging the film is based on him.
"If he had enough strength to do something about it, he would have," Fieger said Friday. "Had he been able to go home, Jack Kevorkian probably would not have allowed himself to go back to the hospital."
"I did not want him to be a martyr because I cared for him and I loved him," Fieger said.
