Boldly going where Chambers went long before

Martin Amis has made a suggestion that there should be euthenasia booths on street corners in a move presumably aimed at stiring people up rather than necessarily any real interest in the matter.

There is a long history of these in fiction through Futurama and Robert Sheckley back to Robert Chambers' Repairer of Reputations back in 1895. Presumably there is now nobody quite old enough left to remember them the first time around.
