    scjjtt, This seems like a 'new thing' in that prominent people declare they're no longer pursuing treatment as a way to signal the end. Aretha Franklin did the same thing and there have been a few others.

    By the way, I agree with you. I am a big McCain fan and have been long before he ran for the presidency (both times).

    Rick, this is the post I meant.

    I can't find the article I was referring to, and I even thought I cut out the hardcopy, but can't find it. There are a few articles that show up as 'no longer available' which is odd as I've never seen that on the Times before.

    Boy hurt in 'stupid' YouTube roundabout stunt attempt

    An 11-year-old boy could have died while attempting to recreate a "stupid" YouTube stunt, his mum has said.
    Tyler Broome passed out while being spun at high speed on a park roundabout using the back wheel of a moped.
    His mother Dawn Hollingworth said doctors told her his injuries were usually seen in fighter pilots suffering the effects of g-force.
    She warned others not to copy the "silly prank", which could have had "life-changing consequences" for Tyler.
    The schoolboy was with a group of older children at the park in Tuxford, Nottinghamshire, when he suggested they imitate the stunt, which features in hundreds of videos shared online.
    A video released by Ms Hollingworth, 51, shows him spread-eagled across the top of the roundabout as it spins around.
    At the end of the recording, he appears to fall down, his head flopping forward as the equipment comes to a stop.

    Note: there is a picture which isn't flattering to Tyler…
