Ludovic Kennedy Has Died.

The prolific British journalist, writer and activist, Ludovic Kennedy, 89, has died.

From the New York Times:

A lifelong atheist, Mr. Kennedy discussed his objections to religion in “All in the Mind: A Farewell to God, (1999). He also advocated euthanasia and assisted suicide. His book “Euthanasia: The Case for a Good Death” appeared in 1990. He co-founded Britain’s Voluntary Euthanasia Society. In 2001, he ran for Parliament in a campaign to legalize euthanasia; he lost but publicized his cause.

Thanks to AZ for the tip.
