And so it ends

My wife just called to inform me that Terri Schiavo passed away. Her ordeal has now ended, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the issue for this country is just beginning.

Update: Jeff Goldstein expresses an opinion that I agree with one hundred percent:

I’ve said on numerous occasions now that were Terri Schiavo my daughter, I’d be storming the hospice with a bottle of Gatorade and a box of donuts. I’d force the cops to shoot me or put me down with a taser gun, if only to draw more attention and sympathy to my cause.

He goes on to mention that he would do so with full awareness that his actions would be considered unlawful, based on court decisions. Yeah, I'd be aware of it too, but I wouldn't give a f*ck. You pull the plug on one of my children and you'd damn well better enter the witness protection program. I'd let God handle the forgiving because I'd be too busy setting up the meeting.
