Jack Kevorkian is clearly a crazy, angry old man. Here's a video of what appears to be an interview done by someone (possibly a student) at the University of Florida with Kevorkian before Kevorkian's recent speech. What an odd society we live in that someone like this gets paid more than many people make in a year to give a speech for an hour. If I was an assisted suicide advocate, I'd be doing whatever I could to make sure this guy stays out of the spotlight.

UPDATE:Here's an article that has a large number of quotes from Kevorkian's speech. I feel immense pity for anyone who listened to Kevorkian's speech and thought like one quoted student that Kevorkian is "very knowledgeable about everything."
