Quote of the Day (August 20, 2009)

New York State Senator Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx), agreeing with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin:
"Section 1233 of House Resolution 3200 puts our senior citizens on a slippery slope and may diminish respect for the inherent dignity of each of their lives....It is egregious to consider that any senior citizen...should be placed in a situation where he or she would feel pressured to save the government money by dying a little sooner than he or she otherwise would, be required to be counseled about the supposed benefits of killing oneself, or be encouraged to sign any end of life directives that they would not otherwise sign."
