When my mom was in her 70's, I walked in her home and immediately saw Dr. Jack Kevorkian's book on her coffee table. A heated discussion ensued. She favored the right-to-die activist's position, who between 1990 and 1998 claims to have assisted in the deaths of 130 terminally ill people.Mom, then full of vigor and good health, felt that elderly people were being kept alive longer by modern medicine, while the quality of their life was "squat," to use her term.

Quality matters more than quantity.
