“We have to make decisions that are deliberative about our health care at every moment. What I have said is that if I cannot say another prayer, if I cannot give or get another hug, and if I cannot have another martini — then let me go.”
–Monsignor Charles Fahey, 76, chairman of the board of the National Council on Aging, a nonprofit service and advocacy group. He was responding to the Associated Press about Sarah Palin’s “death panel” accusations and was Religion News Service’s Quote of the Day.
