Today is the primary in Florida...

Sept. 4 - Gov. Jeb Bush is leaving office after eight years, and Florida voters will take the first step Tuesday in deciding whether they want to elect someone who shares his values or a governor who will seek to dismantle some of the Republican's key programs. It's a race that all the candidates say could be a bellwether for the 2008 presidential election, saying that as Florida goes, so goes the nation. It's also an opportunity for the state's once-dominant Democratic Party to quickly get back some of the power it has lost in recent years.

As Gov. Bush Leaves Office, Florida Must Decide State's Direction

>> Avrett, Poutre's biological mother, lost custody of her daughter after physically abusing her.

I don't believe this. At the least, it needs investigation. It was the abusive half-sister, Holli Strickland, who reported Avrett to the DSS for the alleged abuse. As nearly as one can tell, she simply stole Haleigh from Avrett. God alone knows why; given the later abuse, Strickland obviously hated the child. The DSS gave custody to Strickland, the accuser. (Strickland clearly had an "in" with the DSS and was expert at manipulating their agencies, but that's a story for another day.) In Strickland's custody, Haleigh was starved, burned with cigarettes and beaten nearly to death.

Sounds like a naif to me. It never occurs to the writer that it is illegal as well as morally obnoxious to kill a conscious person, even in Florida. The law specifies that the person to be killed must be irreversibly comatose, utterly unaware, and may feel no pain. Gibbs made the case that Terri was responsive and "in there." It was murder to kill her, and murder by the most cruel and inhumane means imaginable.

Just to read the headline is to fight the urge to regurge. Of the four candidates, only one has reasonably conservative credentials, and his candidacy is probably going to fail. That leaves three who would cheerfully undo the Jeb Bush legacy. The media will sing and dance and crow about "new directions" for Florida, but all they're getting is soiled politicians with bad policy plans.

The writer also complains that David Gibbs seems to demonize Michael, when if Gibb's description of his interaction with Terri is even remotely truthful that would imply that Michael Schiavo et al. knowingly subjected a concious person to a death so horrible as to make burning at the stake seem pleasant by comparison.

If David Gibbs' statements about Terri are accurate, how could he possibly not regard Michael Schiavo et al. as evil?

I finished reading Gibbs's book myself and did a capsule review at #1367. I don't agree with that Amazon(?) writer; it didn't strike me at all that Gibbs was demonizing Michael Schiavo. He was at his best with his eyewitness affirmation that Terri was vibrantly alive and "in there," despite her injuries. Gibbs didn't offer any theories of how she was injured (I would!), just said he'd heard a lot of them. Didn't mention the many instances of MS's meanness we have all heard about here, nor the incidents reported by Carla Iyer. Gibbs is an explicitly Christian writer and referred to MS only (or mainly) in terms of un-Christian behavior -- the long medical neglect and the adultery with Jodi. But on the whole, Gibbs wrote about Terri, not about MS.

IMO, Jeb Bush’s attorney tipped off Felos and hospice that a team was coming to rescue Terri. Ken Connor.
