While I scratch my head for a Fun Friday topic, check out the faith-related coverage of the death of Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the assisted suicide prophet who preached that suffering people had the right to die, even if they needed help to do so — euthanasia as a civil right, if you will.

Looks like his death is resurrecting the debate. Ironic.

Otherwise, it’s been a while since Kevorkian got much publicity, unless you count last year’s HBO movie “You Don’t Know Jack,” starring Al Pacino. (I vaguely recall that it was predictably well-made and well-acted, and of course depressing, but the pacing felt a bit off.)
