What Is Going On II?

This day has been long for many, but too long for Terri.

While are sclerotic court system counts the angels dancing on pinheads, and while counting, partakes in hydration and nourishment, Terri lies dying.

The more I read of "Judge" Greer and his opinions, the more obvious it is to me that he is a man who should have left the bench long ago.

Patterico discusses a ruling which may likely cost Terri her life. Greer, when required to find "clear and convincing evidence" that Terri wanted to die, dismisses the testimony of a witness because Greer can't keep his dates straight. It would seem that our laws would require the burden of proof to be upon those wanting death, not life. But, our laws do not favor life, at least not seriously since 1973.


It is more sickening to read Greer's paean to Michael Schiavo when reconciled with the affidavits of additional nurses reporting Michael Schiavo withheld medical treatment for Terri.

"I know that Terri did not receive routine physical therapy or any other kind of therapy. I was personally aware of orders for rehabilitation that were not being carried out. Even though they were ordered, Michael would stop them."

And, of course, the Lazy Legacy Media continue to lie and tell us that Terri cannot eat and is on "life support":

"At least three times during any shift where I took care of Terri, I made sure to give Terri a wet washcloth filled with ice chips, to keep her mouth moistened.

"On three or four occasions I personally fed Terri small mouthfuls of Jello, which she was able to swallow and enjoyed immensely. I did not do it more often only because I was so afraid of being caught by Michael."

And there are people pretending to be serious and argue that those arguing that Terri be given food and water are destroying the sanctity of marriage.

What is even more laughable is that the Legacy Media take these people and this argument and Michael Schiavo seriously.
