Day Eight

Terri Schaivo has been denied food and water for almost eight days. There are armed police officers encircling the hospice where she is being killed. Anyone entering the building with the intention of bringing nourishment to Ms. Schiavo is arrested and sent off to jail. I heard yesterday that she will be denied the Last Rites of the Catholic church. Her body will be cremated immediately upon her death.

Polls show the American people are supportive of this.

Meanwhile, The Post Decries Abuse of Terrorists

While Terri Schiavo is being starved to death by the judicial system (I heard Michael Schiavo's attorney yesterday advise that the government is there to protect her rights ...), the Washington Post praises all the judges who have lined up to piss on her as she lays dying.
Good Judgment

NEITHER CONGRESS nor President Bush acquitted themselves well last weekend in enacting a law to intervene in the case of Terri Schiavo. But in the days that have followed, one institution of American government has distinguished itself in its handling of the matter: the federal courts. (

At the same time, the Post frets (for the umpteenth time) over those terrorists who were forced to wear panties on their heads in Iraqi prisons.

Detainees Abused in N. Iraq, Army Papers Suggest
By Josh White, Washington Post Staff Writer

Guards and military intelligence personnel allegedly tortured detainees at a U.S. Army holding facility in northern Iraq in late 2003, according to Army criminal investigative documents released yesterday. (link)

And James Taranto Adds This

James Taranto provided this in the Wall Street Journal yesterday:

Starve a Cow, Feed a Fever

"A Cabot [Vt.] farmer convicted of starving his cows to death has begun serving a reparative sentence imposed by Washington County prosecutors as part of a plea bargain," reports the Barre-Montpilier Times Argus:

Christian DeNeergaard pleaded guilty to five misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty in January. He received a suspended one-year sentence as well as 30 days of work crew assignment as part of a deal with prosecutors. DeNeergaard, 47, may not own or possess livestock during his year of probation and must also undergo alcohol-abuse counseling.

In October, then-Washington County State's Attorney Tom Kelly said he would seek at least some jail time for animal neglect, which claimed the lives of at least 11 cows.

"We think some jail time is appropriate," said Kelly in an October interview. "The cows suffered tremendously."

Even though DeNeergaard won't be behind bars, every American can sleep easy knowing that we live in a society that does not tolerate a man starving a cow to death.
