Ah, but 'sd' violated their 1st Commandment: I am the Lord of my blog, thou shalt not rain on my parade of moral vanity:
There are many things to mourn about the Schiavo case. ....That for a decade and a half a woman whose soul has irrecoverably fled has been kept breathing. ....That the parents have been unable to listen to the doctors who tell them that their daughter's soul has irrecoverably fled. ....
It is right and fitting for all of us to mourn all of these
What is abnormal is for the Republican slime machine to step in, with its standard mix of lies: "She talks and she laughs and she expresses likes and discomforts," said Tom DeLay. "It won't take a miracle to help Terri Schiavo. It will only take the medical care and therapy that patients require." False witness on this scale is definitely not a help.
It is right and fitting for all of us to mourn this.
