Perhaps no other medium could help conjure images of the French Revolution, jack-o’-lanterns, prosthetic limbs and millions of dollars at the same time.

Savor the Internet era.

Here’s Paul Morgan, paralyzed from the ankles down, preparing to have his feet cut off by guillotine on Halloween night on a Webcast that costs $20 per subscription. After completing a credit card transaction at his site, http://www.cutoffmyfeet.com, subscribers can visit a chat room to discuss Morgan’s amputation and enter comments in a virtual suggestion box. The site also has links to send information about the Web site to a friend, about advertising on the site and on how to make donations.

Happy Halloween!!
