Summing Both Sides Up in One Sentence

If Michael Schiavo isn't a complete a**hole, he's doing a damn fine job imitating one.

This is almost as bad as when the Left tried to make Rodney King into a noble hero just because he wasn't on the Other Side.

Anyway, have as happy an Easter as you can in these sad and frightning times.

I'm off to Mom's for a family dinner.

Once again, thank you for your posts this week-- including this morning's poem. A blessed Easter to you and your family.

I hope Terri's family-- and her virtual extended family-- know that Michael Schiavo is not God. He may have the power to prevent a human servant of God from bringing Holy Communion to a dying Christian, but he does not have the power to keep the Risen Lord from visiting Terri in His own way.

This could be why. As I posted this morning:

But if Terri is given communion, she will have the opportunity to swallow, an opportunity she has not had since the feeding tube was initially implanted, long ago.

* * *

So if, given the chance, Terri can swallow, it will be evidence, perhaps even conclusive evidence, that she can sustain herself; that she can eat food in liquid form and drink water, and that she should - no must - be given that opportunity to do so.

ABC reported that Terri was given communion, or at least the wine.

Stay tuned.

It would be a token amount. Not likely she could or would have to swallow a tiny quantity, so I doubt it means anything in that sense.

Apparently Terri was given communion in some form today.

Now those who are executing her can feel better.

I recall that after the tube was taken out, Michael took her parents off the list of authorized visitors, only to change his mind a few hours later - much the same as seems to have happened here, the ugly decision followed by a turnaround.

Maybe Unless informed on the Schiavo case, best to remain silent.

Such modesty, Mr. Sucher. Racing around the internet to tell bloggers to shut up because you don't think they know enough.

Question for you? Do you feel the same way about journalists? Should they shut anytime their knowledge is incomplete?

That's going to be one skinny newspaper.

He also changed his mind about allowing an autopsy - that would have looked TOO suspicious I guess.

I'm actually not sure what the point of an autopsy is supposed to be.

It will presumably show that she has massive damage to her cerebral cortex, but we already know that and it's not a point of contention. Presumably there will be additional damage due to the manner in which she's being put to death, but that is not news either.

Mr. Henry,
Please reread my post.
