The Weariest River

Interesting. Terminal patients are displayed for the entertainment of persons requiring 'emotional therapy', who watch their suffering to supplement an otherwise emotionally empty life. Meanwhile picketers champion the right to die with dignity, and some of their number work with the hospital's director of security to kill them painlessly with barbiturates.
