Quote for Maddie (and news about her, too)

I was reading Ambulance Driver's blog and read a quote that brought the conversation about Jan's comments about suicide to mind:

Killing yourself: a legitimate exercise of the right of self-ownership.

Threatening to kill yourself: Extortion. It is exactly the same as threatening to kill a hostage.

The threatener is initiating force-by-proxy on those with whom he shares his threats.

As for Maddie herself, she's home from the hospital and reports feeling human again. I hope the rest of her recovery from surgery is smooth sailing.
