Amy Welborn at In Between Naps has a very interesting discussion of last night's abortion subplot on HBO's Six Feet Under. Permalinks aren't in order, so you may have to scroll to find her story.

Amy writes:

"So...for me, at least, the connection was darkly transparent, even if it was unintentional...serial killer storyline juxtaposed with an assembly-line abortuary scene...a missing, presumed dead figure not appreciated by her husband until she was gone telling him, 'I'm not a chance, I'm a person.'"

Here's a link to the reflections of the screenwriter for this particular episode of Six Feet Under, who evidently got his start writing Deep Thoughts for SNL.
