Great Quotes: Death Panel

Andrew Klavan wrote "The Panel - What death by bureaucratic fiat might look like." for the Wall Street Journal. The whole thing is brilliant, but this quote, is monumental.

The people behind the long table do not know what they've become. The drug of power has been sugared over in their mouths with a flavoring of righteousness. Someone has to make these decisions, they tell their friends at dinner parties. It's all very difficult for us. But you can see it in their eyes: It isn't really difficult at all. It feels good to them to be the ones who decide.
