I am by no means a "new age peace and light people" and while I agree with you that people are by their very nature selfish, I don't think this excludes the need to help others. People help people because doing the right thing feels good or because their action of doing what is right somehow effects them personally in some way. So sure that is a selfish motivation, but it doesn't mean that every human out there wouldn't do the right thing.
There are a lot of good people out there and if your disgusted with the human race does that mean your disgusted with yourself as well? Or are you the only 'good' one out there? LOL

I have told my wife, if she thinks I am having a cardiac arrest, she should have a cup of coffee, watch TV for a while, THEN call 911. I don't want her to waste money on a futile attempt to get me back, and I don't want to take the risk of spending my last years, a vegetable in a nursing home.

this may sound raw to hear, but was the girl that died.. a particularly annoying or not-well-liked person in the work place? overweight?
was she the type of person that some of these people actually.. (as much as I don't like saying it) .. WOULDN'T MIND seeing "gone" ?
just asking, because as sick as it is...that might have been a factor in their negligence of aid.
