Hopefully, the circus and freak show outside Terry Schiavo's hospice room will move on. What transpired over the past few weeks has been disgraceful, egged on by the media, cable chatters, charlatans, religious extremists, self-serving pols and camera-hungry publicity whores. It was as ugly a display of human behavior as I've ever seen, and I fear that Schiavo's death will serve to fuel even coarser displays. No way that fascist Randall "I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good ... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism" Terry disappears, not after getting his brand back. And Jesse Jackson? He'll render unto Murdoch what is Murdoch's. It would take a court order to get the microphone removed from his face.
