Will They Let Terri Schiavo Go?

The death of anyone is sad -- diminishing, as the poet Donne said -- but surely it is time to be merciful to Terri Schiavo who has been in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) for 14 years. It is my hope that her feeding tubes can be disconnected as her husband wishes and she can die a dignified death in the next few days.

Or will somebody think up yet another court case? As her lawyer in Florida has said, the many court cases have made a mockery of the legal system. How many cases do you have to win to win?

Late note: It is postponed again -- until Friday!
