Hentoff is a liberal's liberal. But he full well understands right-to-life issues.

It's good to have him on our side.

Hentoff is a liberal's liberal.

He's too real for that -- more like a person's person. Nah, he transcends labels. I have no idea ... he's Hentoff, and that's good enough.

Hentoff is one of the few commentators around who thinks things through for himself and doesn't let himself be swayed if some of his allies come out with something different. Knows his jazz too.

Doesn't sound as if the "we" there includes you.

You don't grasp that this opens the door for many other disabled people to be murdered? That means children and adults. Terri is a symbol for the disabled community. This is often overlooked. The disabled community knows full well this puts them in danger.

Euthanasia and abortion are promoted by the same scum including the ACLU. Or, some people are just Terri haters or Terri supporter haters. Are you one of them?

It's an ancient principle that every single life is precious.

Incidentally, Hentoff has never hesitated to speak out against abortion.

I'm upset at both, abortions and the death of Terri equally. Both are examples of our country at its worst.

Nat Hentoff gets it. Florida politicians and judges do not.

Disabled Floridians can be murdered now based upon hearsay evidence as of July 1, 2005.

Are you an adult? If you were starved and dehydrated to death, would anyone be upset? If I may answer that for you; Yes. A lot of people would be upset. A few people would complain about the majority of people not liking it. A handful of people would make jokes about it. There would be the usual comments about poetic justice. Most of us would be upset.

Hentoff sums it up perfectly.

"It's good to have him on our side."

A self described atheist and against the death penalty?
