Oh For Pete's Sake!
I didn't join in the Terri Schiavo hoopla because I hadn't followed the story before the situation became dire and didn't want to take the time required to get up to speed on the story. Plus I did feel that in general, the decision as to whether to pull the plug should be left to the husband.
However, this is disgusting
:First Pinellas County probate court judge George W. Greer was lauded by his fellow attorneys in the Clearwater and West Pasco Bar Associations, called judge of the year for ordering the death of disabled Terri Schindler-Schiavo.
Then Greer and federal judge James Whittemore who had refused to sign a stay of Greer’s death sentence in the right-to-life case to allow a new review of the case as decreed by Congress and the President were named Jurists of the Year by the Florida of the American Board of Trial Advocates.And in what some claim is the most arrogant act of all, on Aug. 5, the Florida State Guardianship Association named Michael Schiavo “Guardian of the Year” for killing his wife and saying that she would have wanted it.
