Got a little political with my editor's note

I was so psyched today to get a letter about my editor's note in our last issue. It was about doctors discussing end-of-life issues (you know, that "death panel" thing), and I really worried about wading into politics. But with healthcare reform in the spotlight, how could I not? Anyway, the letter writer made a great point that I hadn't thought about.

If you haven't checked it out, I'd like to invite you to read "Let's Talk About the Hard Stuff" and let me know what you think here, or at the article site, or via e-mail. Am I totally out to lunch on this one?
