I hope the first order of business for the Schindlers is to rebut all Michael's lies and obfuscations, point by point, from his LKL appearance last week.
IMO they should lead off with the truth about Michael's TWO children out of wedlock - maybe run a video clip of Michael hemming and hawing about having 'one' child in response to a question from a caller.
If the 14-year-old child has been confirmed by airtime, that should be discussed, along with the implications of that extramarital relationship as possible motivation for Terri's mystrious 'collapse.'
Next, a recap of Dr. Michael Baden's commentary in which he RULED out heart attack or potassium defiency as cause for Terri's collapse.
Then a recap of Michael's "loving care" throughout the years, covering his DNR order, his order to not treat Terri's UTI in hopes she would die, his promise to care for her for the rest of her life while asking a jury for funds for her rehabilitation, then his sudden reversal after getting the 1.2 million settlement.
Also I hope Larry King replays Michael choking on the question posed about taking a lie detector test (to determine whether he's telling the truth about "Terris' wish" to be put to death) and Michael telling Larry his "went through this with his parents" (in reference to putting Terri out of her misery).
Michael is a piece of work who took advantage of an innocent, naive girl. He's cast from the same mold as Scott Peterson: a selfish, lying, adulterer who thinks he's above the law. If he harmed Terri because she found out about his affair or out-of-wedlock child, the parallels to Scott Peterson are even stronger. Many suspect that Laci was murdered after finding out about Amber Frey and demanding a divorce.
Scott Peterson: "No child support for me!"
Michael Schiavo: "No tubes for Terri!"
Hope Larry mentions the Peterson case as an example of a "perfect" marriage with lots of problems unbeknownst to family members. I suspect the Schindlers thought Terri and Michael had a "perfect marriage" too when they signed papers giving all guardianship rights to Michael.

I want it to all come out. Hopefully it'll happen exactly as you've described it.
