For John, BLUF: Hard cases make bad law. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I am a little calmer now. However, on the way to the Podiatrist, and leaving, I was listening to NPR's "On Point" program, with Reporter Tom Ashbrook. Mr Ashbrook used to work for The Boston Globe.
I caught the first ten minutes and the last ten minutes of a show on a situation down in Texas where a woman was brain dead, and decomposing, but pregnant and the hospital was keeping her alive, until a judge said the family could pull the plug on the woman. I missed the middle part and perhaps Mr Ashbrook was more neutral. However, in the parts I listened to it was obvious Mr Ashbrook had decided what the answer was and he was going to steer the show that way. It was a Governor Andrew Cuomo moment—I might as well move out of the US since I have the wrong views.♠
When I listen to NPR I am hoping to find out new facts or different facts or different understandings of the facts. I am not looking for pre-packaged diatribes. What does Lance think?
