Reed, 71, cancelled a number of concerts in April and had surgery in Cleveland rather than in his native New York due to what Anderson described as the "dysfunctional" hospitals in his home town.

No, he bought a liver. It was available in Ohio.

At 71, there were far more deserving people than him who could have used it, and for better reasons than letting him off the hook for his drug and alcohol abuse.

Welcome to America. Ya got a dump truck fulla money? Well, ok... we'll shove this guy's liver in you so you can dodder on for another couple of years. No dump truck fulla money, you say? F*ck you. But hey, at least we're not one of them evil commie nations with their free or affordable healthcare, amirite?

To be fair to the Reeds, Mr. Reed's buddy Andy Warhol would be alive today if he'd returned to his hometown (Pittsburgh) for what, thanks to NYC hospital disfunction, turned out to be his last hospital visit.

My outrage meter remains pegged at zero.

Keith Richards' liver laughs at Lou Reed's and  orders another quart of Jack.

The mental image of Lou Reed doing tai'chi amuses me for some reason. Maybe I just need more coffee...or alcohol...fark it, both.

You are lying.

FTFA:  "You send out two planes - one for the donor, one for the recipient - at the same time. "

So I don't think they got a plane for the donor if it was already available in Ohio.

Oh goody, another person who believes in the Death Panels.
You want to decide who is allowed to live?

Drug and alcohol abuse are diseases, don't blame him.

I don't like opera and I don't like ballet
And new wave french movies, they just drive me away
I guess I'm just dumb, 'cause that stuff makes me shiver
But deep down inside, I got a rock 'n' roll liver

A priest, a minister, a rabbi and Lou Reed's old liver walk out of a bar.....
And the bartender goes "Hey was this some kind of a joke?!"

THIS

/"Doctor is coming," the nurse thinks SWEETLY, 
Turning on the machines that NEATLY PUMP AIR. 
The body lies bare. 
Shaved and hairless, what once was SCREAMING, 
Now lies silent and ALMOST SLEEPING. 
The rain must have gone away.

and I'm sure many many other rich liberal folk who bought their way to the front of the waiting  list.

But then don't let your hatred of people with differing political views get in the way of you making completely asinine comments.

To be fair, Reed has been sober for thirty-odd years at this point.

That's exactly what I was thinking/wondering too....
I had thought he had quit drinking sometime around "Growing up in Public" and "The Blue Mask"
