Aussie Pro-Deathers Roll On, Spin, Spin, Spin

If ever you wanted to read a story of selfishness masquerading as balanced argument, read this from Australia:

LET me paint a picture. It is my mother's 91st birthday. She lives in an aged-care facility. When we were kids it was called a nursing home. It is a beautiful building surrounded by gardens and staffed by genuinely kind people who take great care of my mother.
She has broken both her hips and her pelvis in the past decade, as well as going blind from macular degeneration. She has not recognised or responded to her children for more than a year; her dementia started more than 15 years ago. She has been in dementia specific care for 10 years and high care for five years. more
