Well, crap.

Okay, it now appears that while Dr. Cheshire is not a quack overall, he may well be a quack when it comes to diagnosing Terri Schiavo. Nuts. The name should've tipped me off. Which changes none of my thinking on the actions of the various legislature and executive branches involved in the case, but does make me grudgingly admit that maybe the judicial branch has been right all along. Which is encouraging in the sense that the system worked the way it is supposed to-- despite the best efforts of two of the branches to overwhelm the third.

Which is a remarkable testament both to the durability of our political scheme and to the framers of the Constitution. If you have not read about the people involved in Colonial times, you really, really should. A more amazing bunch of personalities and minds has rarely been gathered in the same place at the same time in human history.
