I fondly remember Casey Kasem’s weekly radio program, American Top 40. Sadly, Kasem now suffers from dementia and his daughter has gotten a green light from a judge to kill him by stopping all food and water. My good friend, Bobby Schindler cringes every time he thinks about the nearly two-week ordeal his sister, Terri Schiavo, experienced when her husband denied her food and water. Terri died by a very gruesome and brutal process. It was so bad, Bobby told his mother Mary not to go see Terri in her final days. Kasem had signed a power of attorney statement allowing his children to make medical decisions for him. In spite of pleas from his wife of thirty-three years on behalf of her husband’s life, the daughter is moving ahead. Food and water are not medical treatment.
