Is this guy talking about the same Charlie we know? Have any strange lightning bolts struck in Florida? Or could this be an indication a Charlie weather vane is now indicating a strong wind in our favor?

..................................

Gov. Charlie Crist has proved he is enamored of the radical right. His recent appointment of two right-wing ideologues to the Florida Supreme Court are dead wrong for blind justice, the court of last resort in the state and every man, woman and child here — and for generations to come.

He has now willingly turned himself into Florida's version of President Bush, having given us the equivalent of U.S. Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito — and for the same crass, self-serving purposes.

Will Florida families let the governor pack the Supreme Court with justices who may give us other Terri Schiavo fiascos with a different outcome, taking away their right to make their health and end-of-life decisions?..............

Gov. Charlie Crist is tilting Florida Supreme Court too far to right

Science shows an amazing grasp of the obvious...

........................................

Most of the time, doctors have a simple way to determine if a patient needs pain medication: They ask. But when a brain injury renders someone unable to respond to questions, the right course of action becomes murkier. Now a study finds that the brains of some patients with brain injuries respond to an unpleasant electrical shock much as do the brains of healthy people, suggesting that these patients may feel pain even though they're unable to show it.

The findings are an important contribution to an understudied area, says Nicholas Schiff, a neurologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Minimally conscious patients can't talk or even wince to let doctors know they're in pain, Schiff notes: "There's nothing to guide you without this kind of data." Even so, Schiff says, researchers need to study a larger sample of patients before making specific guidelines for pain medications.

Altered perceptions? Minimally conscious patients may have a greater capacity to feel pain than do those in a vegetative state (such as Terri Schiavo, above).

I picked up my McCain-Palin yard sign today. There was a nice poster of Sarah Palin in the HQ. Since I'm an indy and cuz that RNC HQ helped bump off Terri, I didn't stick around to volunteer. At least I have my yard sign. The judges who killed Terri will have their judgment day by the real judge (Fr. Pavone).

Charlie Crist wants to be re-elected so he's going to choose conservative judges. He still let Terri die and I'm glad McCain didn't choose him for VP pick.
