DEATH

EUTHANASIA - DYING WITH DIGNITY


A man is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Within a few months even morphine won't stop the pain. What does our medical and legal community offer him?  Basically, just "Deal with it."

THE NIGHTMARE DRUG

PSYCHO THERAPISTS!


First they feed on your fears! Then they drive you nuts! Then they suck your wallet dry! Then they completely flip out! Who are these people? The bad mixed in with the good.

LOOK WHO'S STALKING


Women get stalked. Husbands who cheat get stalked. But an average 30-year-old single professional trying to launch a career is not supposed to have an obsessive female chasing him down and becoming violent in front of his coworkers. Doesn't that only happen to talk-show hosts? Well, what if you meet one who won't heed a restraining order? 5/01

BAD ADS


Sickening New Wave of TV Commercials Show Men Betraying Buddies for Nuggets, Booze and Women:

WHAT IF CIGARETTE ADS TOLD THE TRUTH?

Like using their charity work to get their cigarette image back on television and pretending cigarettes have nothing to do with over 1,200 deaths a day. MORE This mimic of Marlboro ads appeared in the 2/01 issue of Stance magazine for young men. There's a body bag over the trailing horse and the Surgeon General's box noting "Yee Haw! You too can be an independent. rugged, macho-looking dead guy."  16 mg of cancer-causin' tar, 200 mg of false self-confidence, 2500 mg of "Giddy-up, nobody gonna tell me what to do!"  www.thetruth.com/main.cfm?flash=no
