Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the Michigan pathologist who put assisted suicide on the world's medical ethics stage, died this morning. He was 83.

He had been hospitalized for about two weeks with kidney and heart problems. His attorney said it appears Kevorkian suffered a pulmonary thrombosis when a blood clot from his leg broke free and lodged in his heart.

I hope his passing was quick and dignified and without prolonged suffering.
