    I respect your decision flytrap. Having made that decision, I'd expct you to respect that it is intensely personal, and it is not your place to tell othersw, such as this motorcycle rider, how he or his family should make that decision.

    We need a Lodge Death Panel. I nominate Salty Dave to head it up.

    James, your absolutely right it's not my place to tell others what to do, there's far to much of that in today's society.

    I was just curious about how the Lodge felt/thought about this kind of instance. I was never asked by the family, nor did I tell them, they should pull the plug. It kind of rankles me to have to pay for someone else's stupidity, but as has been pointed out, we are all stupid at some point, and while keeping them alive at our expense may not be fair it is probably the right thing to do.

    P.S. If I had been asked I would have said pull the plug because the guy's life as he knew it was over.

    Just follow those dopers for long enough . . . they'll do something wrong. Then, the cops proceed as noted above.
    In PA it's more than $10 but is (unless the law has changed) a secondary offense for which you can be cited only after being stopped for something else.

    Unfortunately, the new cell phone laws championed by others on the board will lead to precisely that type of baseless stop by police trying to enforce such a law. Cops will be peering into peoples' cars trying to confirm cell phone usage and once harmless acts will become the basis for forming reasonable suspicion for a stop. From now on, never drive by a cop looking at your lap, your radio, your console, etc. lest you be thought to be in violation of the law. Eyes on the road and hands at 10 & 2 will take on new meaning now: police avoidance.
