This is an NYT article that really got to me. It's a major downer, but very well written and thought provoking. The article focuses on the author's father's decision to have a pacemaker, which caused an extension of the end of his life.

I'm posting it to make sure that folks have a chance to see it and also to remind myself about the whole living will issue (and also since it seems a little too long and heavy for a facebook post).
