Had a potential subscriber to my DEATHLAW list send me a tough question:

AH>My dad - when he's lucid - occassionally comes up with a funny joke about
AH>his condition.

AH>Can I post jokes about death on the list?

On the one hand, it'd be in kinda poor taste, as well as only marginally
on-topic to a discussion about Law and Death.  On the other hand...
well, I gotta consider the source.  Gotta make allowances for the input
of a dying person to any discussion related to death.
