Terri Schiavo died this morning.
There is no longer, as far as I can see, any excuse whatsover for continuing to make her medical condition, or her family’s dysfunction, a public issue.
I therefore propose a moratorium on any public mention of her name for some decent interval: say, 30 days. Update: Of course, even after 30 days some things will remain inappropriate to say, and Tom DeLay can be relied on to say them.
After that, the case might reasonably be discused in the context of larger discussions about end-of-life issues or the relationships between the judiciary and the other two branches of government.
Yes, there’s more to say, but now really and truly isn’t the time to say it.
