Terri Schiavo is Gone

In other stupid government news, Congress bizarrely subpoenad Terri Schiavo and is now working on legislation that would have her feeding tube reinserted.

Have a look at this normal brain CT scan (from here) and compare it to Terri Schiavo's brain.

I'm not a doctor — and I don't even play one on the Internet — but when I compare those pictures it's manifestly clear that the person Terri was is unrecoverably gone. There's nothing to save. Let the shell of this former person die.

(And if you want to be humane about it, how about administering a lethal injection instead of waiting for her to starve to death?)
