NAME ADDRESS CITY/STATE. ZIP_ Kubler-Ross: aI take all my patients home to die!' by Doris Taylor "Death as we understand it in scientific language does not really exist," Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, the world's leading authority on death and dying, stated recently before an audience at Hofheinz Pavilion. "Death is simply a shedding of the physical body, like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon." If anyone living today is in a position to know, it would be Dr. Kubler- Ross. Death has been her almost-constant companion for many years, and she has formed some remarkable views on the subject. Since World War II, she has delved into the subject of death, searching out dying people, talking with them, observing their reactions and recording what she has learned. "Dying patients are the best teachers," according to Dr. Kubler-Ross. "They go through the denial and the anger, and the 'Why me?'. They question God and reject God. They bargain and they go through terrible depressions." The agony of death is familiar to Dr. Kubler-Ross. However, she has seen another side of dying; one that has led her to believe that death is simply a transition into a higher state of consciousness. "I had a patient who had been in intensive care 15 times. Each time she was expected to die, and each time she made a comeback. The woman knew death was near, but she felt compelled to 'make it through at least one more time' for the sake of her youngest son. Crisis again struck, and she found herself floating a few feet above her body. As the medical team worked to revive her, she tried to tell them, 'relax, take it easy, it's okay.' That's when she realized that they could not hear her." Dr. Ross continued, "This woman was declared dead, and an incredible Vh hours later she made another comeback and Media Matters continued cancel his speech in Salt Lake City, or at the minimum use the occasion to reaffirm his support for ERA. Carter went, made his speech, praised family life and did not mention the ERA by name. There is no chance that Carter did not understand the implications of "family life." It was clearly explained to him beforehand by his executive aide Sarah Weddington and by the Mormons for ERA. Esquire's latest issue has a sultry cheesecake female on the cover, and the legend "The Year of the Lusty Woman-It's All Right to be a Sex Object Again." The author of the cover story is Judy Klemesrud, "an avowed feminist and veteran New York Times reporter," according to "Backstage with Esquire." Klemesrud maintains that "women are clearly enjoying their new freedoms .... not only in equality in the office and at home but in equality of sexual agressive- ness." As Thomas Griffith of Time's "Newswatch" (December 18) points out, "How wide the phenomenon of the lusty-again woman is, and how detached an observer of the trend Klemesrud is, gets called into question, however, when 'Backstage with Esquire' goes on to note: 'Klemesrud is sending out Christmas cards this season that bear a striking photograph of her lying face down on a fur rug, stark naked.' " Tom Brokaw, wealthy host of NBC's Today Show, has received a $345,000 federal loan guarantee to buy a South Dakota radio station. Federal investigators said they found nothing wrong with the Small Business Administration guarantee, and pointed out that it would be illegal to discriminate against a loan applicant because of his/her economic resources. We always assumed that this particular SBA program was set up to help minorities buy broadcast outlets. Presumably, we assumed wrong. Washington Post reporter Tom Shales has good news for all the 'elitist intellectual snobs who hardly ever watch television'—a television show of their own. "We Interrupt This Week" is a PBS current-events quiz for celebrity players, described by Shales as having "superficial resemblances to the great American game show, but in fact there are no prizes, precious few rules and a capricious scoring system of points dispensed entirely at Sherrin's whim. On a recent program, a question was,'Who said, "The possibilities of heterosexuality are soon exhausted?" ' After a puzzled pause, guest panelist Gore Vidal ventured a meek, 'Did I?' " 'That is not correct,' said Sherrin. 'But as you have probably said it every week for the past 20 years, I will give you two points.' " The headline on a recent story (Post Nov. 10) on a 10-cent pay phone at the County Courthouse refers to the telephone company as "Ma Bell. " Funny. What with its good ol' boy management and reputation for greed superimposed on bumbling inefficiency, I've always thought of it as "Pa Bell. " More seriously, however, use of such smart-alec personifications by news people is indirect editorializing-a shoddy journalistic ploy. I doubt if The Houston Post Company would appreciate being referred to as "Ma Hobby." Twiss Butler 18507 Point Lookout Drive, Houston, Texas 77058 That headline use of the term "Ma Bell" was not original It is an expression widely used, and has appeared in Sound - Off. No one at the Southwestern Bell Telephone Company has written S-0 to protest its use. -Editor. This letter by Twiss Butler, a most astute critic of the media, raises an interesting point; one that is completely ignored by S-0 editor Bill Bedell. HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH DECEMBER/JANUARY 1979
