The staunchly Roman Catholic Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg has refused to sign the law legalising euthanasia. He has explained his position in a radio message to the country. It's caused a constitutional crisis. The government plans to strip the GD of his powers. Personally, I think he should have abdicated in favour of his son, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume (what a hunk!). I wonder what Henri's father, Grand Duke Jean, thinks of all this.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
THIS IS ME...
... I blog from BURLINGTON, VERMONT. I'm a hustler about civic engagement & social action and I'll make publicity against a world that degrades and shames whatever way I can. Joy!
