Is coming nearer on the path.

Mark Kleiman Pulls Schiavo and Volokh Together

Uniting two of the more active and involuted debates recently to emerge in the blogosphere with some much needed levity, Mark Kleiman asks:

Tell the truth, now:

When you consider the solidity of the medical evidence supporting the decision to discontinue life support for Terri Schiavo, the frivolousness of the "evidence" offered on the other side, and the utter heartlessness Tom DeLay has shown in smearing the (Republican, Baptist) judge in the case and her husband, simply as a way of rallying his political base and driving his own ethical problems off the newspages, doesn't part of you -- maybe not a part you're proud of, but a part of you nonetheless -- agree with Eugene Volokh?

No? Not even a little bit?

Post, and embedded links here. Thanks to Armand for the heads-up.
