Do not go gentle

. . . into that good night . . . Rage, rage against the dying of the light." In this case, it was a wife's rage. What can you say about the husband other than, he married well. Toronto Star: Man out of 19-year coma

When doctors could do no more, Grzebski's wife Gertruda took him home and cared for him, Gazeta said . . .

"I would fly into a rage every time someone would say that people like him should be euthanized, so they don't suffer," she told Gazeta.

Quoting The Simpsons has long fallen out of fashion, yet I can't help but recall the eloquent words of Homer Simpson as they suit this particular situation, "If they’re ever going to pull the plug on me, I want you in my corner, honey."

The Simpsons had another episode about a man emerging from a coma.

He asked Kent Brockman if Sonny and Cher still had 'that stupid TV show'. Brockman replied, "No. He's a Congressman and she won an Oscar."

The guy said "Good night!" and died right then and there.

I wonder how this poor guy will react when he finally enters the world he missed for the past 19 years. No more communism (plus), capitalism (huge plus), the internet (good), Paris Hilton (huge negative), reality TV (way down that list), and terrorism.

I'm sure he'll have a lot to catch up on.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear his wife has strong Christian beliefs.

In Poland, home of the previous Pope? No doubt! It was the Catholics that overthrew the Polish Commies - another reason the Leftoids hate them.
