Today I have a piece in the NY Times letters page about ending life support to dying patients. I love this subject, and feel strongly about this issue because I have personally seen the negative effects of loved ones being stuck on life support while quality of life goes downhill. I have also seen the positive effects of hospice and dying naturally at home. So that being said, this one was pretty easy for me. Thanks a bunch to Alexandra Zsigmond.

 I've been on a bit of a sabbatical, but now I'm back! I hope you had a fantastic summer! Here's a piece I did recently for the New York Times science section about addiction. Thanks again to AD Peter Morance.
