#1 Oh, I don't know. A prolonged period of extreme pain while withering away in an Israeli jail would be very nice. They should capture him, and keep him alive without pain medication for as long as possible. It could be televised for fun.

#2 My mom died of cancer. At the end, no amount of drugs helped her with the pain. By the time she died, my and my older brother were the only ones in the room. The rest of the family had left, one by one, over a sixteen-hour period of time, when they decided they couldn't take it anymore.

I know exactly what I am saying when I wish all of this and more on Arafat.

#3 Been there, done that. Mom was diagnosed with malignant pancreatic cancer that had spread to her liver. She died about eight months after the diagnosis, and in the last month, they were giving her pure morphine, and it didn't do a damn bit of good.

#4 Let me just add that in my comments yesterday, in no way would I denigrate any of my patients or any family member of any Rantburger -- indeed, any American. I provided some clinical information (as I'm a doc) that I felt would be useful to our discussion of Yasser's supposed gastric carcinoma.

I might also add that while I'm a doc and am supposed to be humanistic, etc, etc, I draw the line at terrorists. Terrorists should be shot on sight; if we can't our hands on them than I have no objection to their dying a lingering, painful death. And Yasser most assuredly is a grade-AAA terrorist, up to his eyebrows and beyond in murder, assassination, blood, gore and misery. How many millions have suffered and suffer today because of that man?

I hope that all here understand the distinction I'm making, and I certainly offer my deep condolences to those of you who've lost a loved one to cancer. It ain't pretty.

#5 My conscience tells me it's wrong to wish Yasser a drawn-out, agonizing demise. I'm only making an exception in his case. Other than him and Kim Jong Il, I can't think of anyone I'd wish it on.

Except maybe Hafiz Saeed...

#6 My conscience tells me it's wrong to wish Yasser a drawn-out, agonizing demise.
It is - that should be "SHORT, HIGHLY PAINFUL, AND HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS" demise.
