      for the donor than I do for the recipient.  

      What a gift!  Organ donation is so important, and accompanied with such tragedy.  Someone died who was loved, and had a family, and after that person's experiences and being itself went extinct the gift went on to allow another to live.  The family (or the individual) made a decision to save other lives in the midst of that sort of loss.  It's worth honoring anyone who donates an organ, before or after death.  

      It seems so disrespectful to put that heart into Cheney's body.  I know it is convention around here not to speak ill of the dead.  I confess I was hoping that Cheney's artificial pump would stop and that he would lose consciousness and turn into inert meat, like one of those quail he shot in his obscene canned hunts.  He's been responsible for so much loss.  He's fundamentally malignant and so anti-life that it seems wrong that he should consume a gift of this sort.  

      For the donor's sake, I hope that his/her liver, corneas, kidneys, and other organs are giving new life to others more deserving than Dick Cheney.  When Cheney finally dies, I'll celebrate - I'll have a beer in remembrance of the donor and Cheney's many victims.
