This is in response to something posted in Ray’s
journal, concerning the Terri Scheiavo case. I said I
wasn’t going to get in to this, but here goes anyway.
I’m not going to give my oppinion on this, because,
quite frankly, all the oppinions have been punted back
and forth like a stale hamentashen
for the last however long, and it’s really getting
annoying. I mean, I hate to come off callous, but
really! I’m beginning to think that, if Americans,
of every persuasion, right or left, don’t have some
major media event at least once a year, then they start
to go through withdrawal, and so someone has
to create one before they have to take the measure of
setting up a hotline to deal with the crisis. If I have
to go to work one more time, and walk into
the break room to get some caffeine, and hear Pat
Robertson screaming about how this is judicial murder,
I’m going to murder someone. I think whoever’s
responsible for drumming up the media storm has acted
very immodestly to say the least, and I have to agree
with Ray’s question: Why does this case merit
so much attention when this kind of thing happens all
the time?

  1. I didn’t realize this issue was a common problem, but I also agree in wondering why the hell this has so much press attention and why people are so concerned? It’s another issue, like abortion or gun control, where everybody just goes round and round and opinions fly like bullets and invective is hurled but it doesn’t really help anything. Now, if you really really really wanted me to, I could do the whole Art Bell conspiracy thing and start musing on secret goings-on and nasty underhanded deeds being done while we’re all distracted with this whole discussion, but I think I’ll actually hold onto the sanity I uselessly claim to have and not go there … ever. Hehehehehehe!
