Assisted Suicide Initiative Filed in Olympia

Death as a salesman is knocking on the doors of Washington State again.

The deceptively misnamed initiative Death with Dignity Act promotes assisted suicide. But they studiously refuse to use the word suicide. (To adapt a phrase from Richard John Neuhaus)
They deny the undeniable in order to guide the unthinkable on its passage through the debatable on its way to becoming the justifiable until it is finally established as the unexceptionable.
