No agenda

As judges are supposed to be "duty-bound to be an unbiased, fair finder of fact", it is disturbing to note that Judge Greer of the Shiavo case apparently fails that test.

One year after the death of Terri Schiavo, the judge who ordered her feeding tube removed spoke at a right-to-die symposium; something Schiavo’s family calls a disturbing conflict of interests.The two-day event the University of Pennsylvania was titled The Legacy of the Terri Schiavo Case: Why is it so hard to die in America?

Tyical victimized mantra. Poor Terri, she just wanted to die. And those awful parents of her who stood to gain nothing fought so hard to prevent her from dying of marked dehydration. Cruel isn't it. And poor Micheal Shiavo, noblest of men just wanted to fulfill her wishes that she not be kept alive and deprive him of the large sum of mone... I mean deprive him of closure.
