Brain damaged

The autopsy’s in, the evidence has been presented, everything’s finally settled about Terri Schiavo… except her parents dispute the results, insist that their daughter interacted with them even though she had half a brain and was blind, and they’re not done with the courts, yet. They want other medical experts to look at the autopsy and, according to their lawyer, they may take some unspecified legal action against somebody for something.
And it doesn’t stop there. Florida Governor and Presidential brother Jeb Bush wants an investigation concerning the original 911 call 15 years ago because Michael Shiavo said in 1992 that Terri collapsed at 5 a.m., then in 2003 he said it was 4:30 a.m., but there was no 911 call recorded until 5:40 a.m. So please, when your partner collapses to the floor, remember to check your watch, people, and be consistent about when they lost consciousness and took one step closer to death. I’m sure that’ll be the first thing all of us will remember when dealing with personal tragedy.
Bush’s brother, meanwhile, through White House spokesdork Scott McClellan, said that the autopsy did nothing to change Shrub’s own half-mind about the extraordinary and unconstitutional actions the federal government took during the whole mess, and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a heart surgeon who looked at a small portion of a video of Terri nodding her head and said “she certainly seems to respond to visual stimuli,” now denies that what he said was a diagnosis and also said that he’d do it all again.
Probably because it’s been so much fun for everyone concerned.
