    Default Living With Death - Terry Pratchett and Alzheimers

    Terry Pratchett (Discworld - many, many volumes), apart from giving us the wondrous werewolf Angua, is also one of the first people to come "out" as having Alzheimers.

    Great interview at the moment with the benighted Tubridy.

    Stunning interview. Tubridy managed to say little enough.

    Not sure where there is a link but it might be watchable on the IPlayer. Makes some convincing arguments for Euthanasia...
