Dr. Kevorkian stays locked up

The Parole Board in Michigan has decided not to release Dr. Jack Kevorkian until the end of his sentence.

The Board voted 7-2 to recommend denying the application for a commuted sentence or a pardon for the 77-year-old assisted suicide advocate.

Dr Kevorkian was sentenced in 1999 to 10-25 years imprisonment for giving a fatal injection to Thomas Youk, 52, who had Lou Gehrig's decease and asked Kevorkian to give him a mercy killing.

Previously Kevorkian had participated in some 130 euthanasia cases over nine years.

Kevorkian's lawyers recently asked the Parole Board and the Governor to release Kevorkian on the gounds of his ill health. He has Hepatitis C and high blood pressure.

As with the old proverb "May you live in interesting times", and I wish for the Michigan Parole Board members that their end of lives shall be interesting...
