Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!?
Something must happen to people when they don black judicial robes and take the bench (federal or state) in the state of Florida. My personal opinion is critical lobes of the brain are removed - specifically those governing the areas of rational thought.

US District Judge James Whittemore has evidently undergone this procedure. He has ruled that the continued forced starvation of Terri Shiavo may continue.

Here are the facts of the case:

1. Terri Shiavo is alive.
2. She is disabled.
3. She requires assistance in order to meet her daily needs.
4. Such assistance is available.
5. Her husband desires to, and is currently prohibiting such assistance from being given, thus condemning her to a long, slow, and painful death by starvation and dehydration.

Mr. Shiavo claims to be doing this out of love and compassion for Terri. Would someone please explain to me where starvation and dehydration are found in the definition of love and compassion?

I'm waiting.
