        We're celebrating the "culture of life", not the "culture of brain".

            I'm admittedly a bit emotional about this situation at this point. I know that I would not want to be kept "alive" in such a situation. I agree with the court decisions in this case, as I would want my spouse to be the deciding vote if I were in the same situation. Nevertheless, I feel strongly for the parents and their seeming inability to cope with their daughter's death.

            I just don't see the advantage of abandoning human decency with snarky comments -- or of making up fake bizarre headlines when the real ones have been quite bizarre enough for my tastes.

            ...is how the overall coverage and extreme-right reaction has been regarding this sad tale. My goal was to lampoon these goonheads rather than Terri's condition and death. Yeah, my post was kinda scratchy about the edges. No offense to the sensibilities of this community was intended. = )

            •  I figured as much! :-) (none)
              It's just that posts such as this one are the ones that get quoted in the media and on the freeper-type sites. That certainly doesn't do any of us any good.

              I'm about as sarcastic and biting a person as they come. I appreciate sarcasm as good humor. It gets me in trouble a lot.  :-)
