Nature takes its course There is no dignity in death. As life enters naturally so too must it also be allowed to exit naturally. Ours is not to terminate life but to improve its quality. Inherent disrespect of life in any philosophy would be perceived by many to be the degeneration of the advancement of modern civilization that has sought to improve living and pain management issues incrementally and innovatively over the centuries to date. The recent Victorian Assisted Sucide legislation in my view and I am sure I am not alone in this perspective seeks to unravel the wisdom of the ages in making the assisting and hastening of human life (death) at a time of intense vulnerability 'lawful. 'I am aware there are many who would disagree with this view. Unfortunately however this was not indicative of the view that the majority of current Victorian Parliamentarians who supported and ushered the Assisted Sucide Euthanisa legislation into law took with their votes. However I guess we who have an opposing view have to agree to disagree and be thankful for the Opt-out option though this does not diminish or rule out grave concerns that prevail and that this legislation will undoubtedly present more complex problems into the future.

Off-loaded cargo truck


A truck seemed to be buckling under an uneven load - or else, a serious wheel misalignment. It was captured crawling in late-afternoon traffic on Princes Highway, Doveton. Picture: GARY SISSONS
