Speaking Truth to Power

Michael Schiavo demonstrates a great deal of dignity under the circumstances:

Angered by the latest political developments in Washington, Michael Schiavo said Saturday that it isn't just the Florida governor who should visit his wife to learn about the case.

Jeb Bush's brother, President Bush, should visit Terri Schiavo, too, he said.

"Come down, President Bush," Schiavo said in a telephone interview. "Come talk to me. Meet my wife. Talk to my wife and see if you get an answer. Ask her to lift her arm to shake your hand. She won't do it."

She won't, Schiavo said, because she can't.

And, showing some restraint, he referred to Tom DeLay as a "little slithering snake." Indeed. In fact, I feel bad--for snakes.
