Schiavo-Related Letters in the L.A. Times

Filed under: Dog Trainer,Schiavo — Patterico @ 12:12 am

The L.A. Times has printed several letters about the Terri Schiavo controversy here. One of them opposes the paper’s comparison of the Schiavo case to that of Tom DeLay’s father. But none makes the point I made in my letter (which will apparently not be printed): the biggest difference between the two cases is that the elder DeLay’s wishes were clear, while Terri Schiavo’s wishes remain a mystery.

  1. I just finished reading all the Schiavo-related LAT letters, thanks to your link. In my opinion, none addressed the issue as well or as succinctly as yours. It’s a shame — but not a surprise — that the LAT Powers That Be decided against publishing it.

  2. Actually you said in your letter that DeLay’s family was unaminous while Schiavo’s is not, which is not the same thing. If the LAT digs up some acquaintance of the elder DeLay who claims he always believed “where there’s life there’s hope” would that make the story legitimate?
