Schiavo Quick Hits
Time ticks away, and Terri moves closer to her Creator. I don't have the emotional stamina to say a lot right now. So I'll offer you these nuggets.
An 11-member federal panel refused to hold a full hearing for Terri Schiavo.
Florida Department of Children and Families might take Terri out of the hospice she's been in and reinsert her feeding tube with or without a judge's order.
Bryan Preston castigates come big-time webloggers for selectively entering the Schiavo debate.
Dale Franks talks about "unprincipled" Republicans. It's fairer to state that the Congressional Republicans who passed the special Terri Schiavo law had a conflict between two principles: federalism and the protection of human life. (Stephen Bainbridge dealt with four principles.) It wasn't that the Republicans (and conservatives like me) are unprincipled it's that they had to decide what principle was paramount.
Even though CodeBlueBlog has won some awards I'm not familar with the writer. Here's a doctor's opinion of Terri's condition. Based on CT scans he's seen on the internet "THIS IS IN NO WAY PRIMA FACIE EVIDENCE THAT TERRI SCHIAVO'S MENTAL ABILITIES OR/OR CAPABILITIES ARE COMPLETELY ERADICATED." Take it for what it's worth.
