Thanks, expatguy for this commentary which is appropriate for today with its irony. Here is an excerpt from that link...
On 31 March 2005 at 9:05am Terri Schiavo died
. Terri Schiavo, unable to feed herself was denied any food or water for fourteen days until she finally died of starvation and neglect. To no avail, Terri's parents and family had begged for her life to be spared as a macabre drama was played out in the court with the sole intent of dehumanizing her to the point where her murder by the State could therefore be justified.
But it must be noted that murder and death by misfortune are not synonymous, for just three months earlier the resources of an entire world were called upon to in an urgent attempt to counter nature's Malthusian checks
in the form of the earthquakes, tsunamis and their after effects that had struck Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
