But there's nothing here.

Feel free to delete this comment if there is, but my browser is (for some mysterious reason) not showing it.

Dear Jack,

Thanks, malformed code. Also, the entry afterwards not showing up. Hope it's fixed now.



The Schiavo case was not researched thoroughly. They fished for any law that could be used. As a result, the court blew it down.

As a Florida lawyer, I know you have to prepare for cases. There was not enough preparation for this case. There needs to be an understanding of Florida law, before there is any more criticism of it. People outside this state do not understand the court system here. The governor should have not pushed this legislation forward in the first place.

By the way, the Hurricanes were not punishment for this case. A hurricane is a natural event.

Dear Mr. Stark,

Of course, Governor Bush should just have allowed the woman to be tended to by the gentle mercies of a corrupt legal system. You don't need to understand Florida law to perceive patent injustice.

Yes, I can see how it would be so much better for Bush to simply have allowed the woman to die without this recourse.

This is the ultimate end of the argument you advance above. The implications of leaving the law to work out itself is the death of innocents. One can study the law til the end of time, but to what end if justice is never attained? There was no time for study and consideration--the poor woman was in the sixth or seventh day of being starved to death.

Your objection has no merit. In your own parlance, it is overruled. I'll side with those ignorant of the law and defending life any time, any day. When I read arguments like this, I am convinced that Shakespeare really did advance a pancea for the world's problems.

A single life, unjustly taken or allowed to pass away, undoes any merit a system may claim to have. "If the law supposes that," said Mr. Bumble, "the law is an ass, a idiot." - Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist
