In the news today was the announcement that face transplants are now surgically feasible procedures. (article here) I like the mention that "few were willing to donate their own [face] after dying," probably a huge understatement. :-) Any thoughts?

I like your point, Lori - donating organs to save a life is a noble thing, but by donating your face, all you're doing is helping someone look better. Or in my case, more porcine.

No one can have any part of mine, for any reason. Not that they would want things I already fucked up anyway.

I say go ahead and take my face. It won't look like me placed on another person, and I won't be using it anyway.

Charleston

Is there a moral difference between killing someone and not taking action to save their life? While I oppose the death penalty, I'm glad that I'm not Dylann Roof's prison guard while he's on suicide watch, because I'd have a hard time not looking the other way if that piece of shit tried to hang himself.
