It's even worse than it appears.

  • I've privately encouraged a few reporter friends to look into what it's like to die from "CV", and report on it. #
  • My imagination says it's very horrible. But maybe it isn't as bad as I imagine and maybe they knock you out for the most painful parts. #
  • I know you can request a DNR, thinking of writing it on my body in Sharpie. But can you also request palliative treatment? #
  • And btw, how are supplies of the palliatives?#
  • This is a huge story, and as far as I can see no one is covering it. It would take a lot of courage. #
  • Tom Watson: "Like with mass shootings or war zones, there's a media pact not to present the battlefield to the public." I respond: "This is different. The people they're reporting to are the battlefield."#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
