The assisted suicide of Craig Ewert, a former Chicago compsci lecturer who ended his life two years ago in Switzerland after years of suffering from motor neuron disease, was broadcast today on Sky TV; it's touched off quite a debate in England. You can watch an excerpt here if you so choose, though it wouldn't surprise me if the video's pulled soon.
