I've Been Saying This For Weeks
"In fact, under traditional law, there is more of a case for killing Terry Schiavo’s husband in order to save her from him than there is for killing the brain-damaged woman in the first place."

You can read his editorial on the matter here. Thanks to JAC for pointin' this out.
The fact is, I simply have no respect for the woman's family. Their willingness to allow her to be killed in the name of "The Law" has simply robbed me of any reason to think of them as anything but cowards.
They are willing to protect their daughter... so long as they don't have to get their hands dirty.
