Dignity Held Hostage, Day Whoknows

So, apparently, the federal judge who got the Schiavo case didn't get the memo from Congress about their weekend adventure: don't just review the situation, make the "right" decision. Thankfully, he didn't. You can read the decision denying Schiavo's parents' motion for a temporary restraining order here (thanks to How Appealing). While this doesn't resolve the many issues raised by both parties, it shows just how high a hill the parents have to climb to get any relief, as detailed in this article from the Washington Post. Meanwhile, Dahlia Lithwick over at Slate takes the "activist" Congress to task for getting involved in the whole mess.
