    My recall of the Fox interview appears to have been correct:

    Doctors working in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans killed critically ill patients rather than leaving them to die in agony as they evacuated hospitals, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

    With gangs of rapists and looters rampaging through wards in the flooded city, senior doctors took the harrowing decision to give massive overdoses of morphine to those they believed could not make it out alive.

    In an extraordinary interview with The Mail on Sunday, one New Orleans doctor told how she 'prayed for God to have mercy on her soul' after she ignored every tenet of medical ethics and ended the lives of patients she had earlier fought to save.

    New International Times, the place where Kossacks and the world meet.

      Is the British euphemism for pet euthanasia, so to them sleep just means sleep.

      Even the rumor of euthanasia on patients would be a gift to Bush backers desperate to change the subject.
