Terri Updates

(1) The Associated Press has a graphic which shows how a feeding tube works and a timeline for a typical death-by-starvation-and-dehyrdation.

(2) Brian Schiavo, Michael's brother, said today: "Anybody that thinks that she talks and responds, they need to have a mental health examination." Well, I've seen the videos and I think my mental health is just fine.

(3) The audio going around the web (and linked to here) was from 2004, not the other day. Bobby Schinder (Terri's brother) made the correction today.

(4) There was a hearing today, but the tube has not been reinserted. Andrew McCarthy--the lead prosecutor against Omar Abdel Rahman, the ringleader of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center--explains why this is so wrong.
