I agree with this editorial. It doesn’t happen very often that I agree with the New York Times editors, but this is one of them. I find it highly ironic, though, that the champions of the left are pining for state’s rights in this case, while they seek to trample it with their libertine social agenda in almost every other.
My post yesterday was not intended to endorse the actions of Congress. While I had hoped for a different outcome in Terri’s case — unlike my dear boy Nagi, I do not believe that Michael Schiavo has comported himself honorably — I do not believe that Congress should have intervened.
