Terri begins death by starvation

Following the orders of a Florida judge, doctors removed Terri Schiavo's feeding tube:
Doctors removed Terri Schiavo's feeding tube Friday despite an extraordinary, last-minute push by Republicans on Capitol Hill to use the subpoena powers of Congress to keep the severely brain-damaged woman alive, a source close to the case told The Associated Press. The removal came amid a flurry of maneuvering by Schiavo's parents, state lawmakers and Congress to keep her alive. Committees in the Republican-controlled Congress issued subpoenas for Schiavo, her husband, and her caregivers demanding that they appear at hearings on March 25 and March 28.
These are Mafia-style tactics. A witness is subpoenaed and soon thereafter winds up dead, murdered in bed by a very powerful person. UPDATE: I've received a lot of comments, many of which say things like "her soul is already gone, so let her body go." Could you justify handing Michael Schiavo a pistol and letting him blow her brains out? At least that would be a quick way to go. Instead, Terri faces a slow, excruciating agony for at least the next few days.
