Schiavo hearing ends without decision

For now, Terri goes hungry:
A federal hearing ended without an immediate ruling Monday afternoon on whether to impose an emergency injunction to reinsert the feeding tube of Terri Schiavo, a severely brain-damaged Florida woman. U.S. District Judge James Whittemore, who was nominated to the court in 1999 by former President Clinton, listened to arguments during the hearing he scheduled in Tampa that began about 3 p.m. EST Monday and ended about 5 p.m. Whittemore was considering an appeal filed Monday by Schiavo's parents. The judge said he would not make an immediate ruling, and he gave no indication on when he might act on the request.
Let's get on the stick, Judge. Time is of the essence.
