Terri Schiavo Finally Died

Terri was the woman in Florida whose feeding tube was removed by her husband, but against the wishes of her parents. Then Congress and the President acted like she was the only sick person in the country - holding special sessions and passing laws just for her. Now that she is gone, perhaps Bush will pay attention to things that are actually part of his job.

It was a new high in Republican hypocrisy as the politicians all ran to television cameras to proclaim they had to be on the side of "life". Strange they don't seem worry about "life" in Iraq, Afghanistan or even in our own country where thousands of sick people who are quite alive will die much slower, painful deaths than Terri Schiavo -- and all the same politicians aren't doing a thing about any of them.
