    When the story recently broke that Chiappa Firearms was going to start installing RFID chips in all their guns, I had deep misgivings.

The findings could have a bearing on right-to-die cases such as the one involving Terri Schiavo, who suffered severe brain damage in 1990 and is the subject of a family dispute over whether she should remain alive. The researcher who conducted the study said the results could lead to changes in how patients like Schiavo are diagnosed and treated. Other scientists call the work provocative but far from proof, and...
