“Suzanne Kiner felt like death was tapping her on the shoulder. [Her nine-year-old daughter] Brianne had been comatose for five weeks without improvement. The hospital had been gently coaxing Suzanne toward the decision to remove Brianne from the life-support system. In her mind, Suzanne had been running through the questions that come with planning a funeral. She wondered about the burial site. It needs to be a beautiful cemetery, she thought. But it has to be one that I don’t drive past every day.” —Jeff Benedict, in his book Poisoned (Mariner; May 17), about the 1993 Jack in the Box E. coli outbreak and Seattle attorney Bill Marler’s fight for its victims
