Declaration of Venice; NY Times on Katrina charges

2 Quickies:

The IAHPC is soliciting signatures endorsing the Declaration of Venice calling for expanding research into palliative care in developing countries.

Contrary to my predictions a couple of days ago, the NY Times today published a very reasonable article on the Katrina physician/nurse murder charges. The article involves interviews with bioethicists and does a good job of discussing the issues. Thanks to Dr. Lynn Bunch for alerting me to this. (NY Times pieces are usually available free online for about a week.)
