Washington Times, a cuffed kid, and possible state seizure to start the morning

A clip from my Monday column appears once again in the “Culture Briefs” section of today’s Washington Times. Check it out (it’s the third one). Also, if you haven’t, give a read to the full column. It’s my take on the Terri Schiavo situation. I promised myself I wouldn’t pipe in on that, but I couldn’t take it anymore.

Speaking of Schiavo, there have been some people trying to cross the police line to go in and give water to Terri. Here is one example– A kid, who was led away in handcuffs. Couldn’t they have just distracted the little fella with an XBox or something? Hell, the cops didn’t handcuff Brian Nichols, the guy who blew away four innocent people in Atlanta, but they’ve sure got Skippy the waterboy under control!

Options for the Schindler family have dwindled to simply hoping that Jeb Bush orders the state of Florida authorities to barge in and take Terri out of the hospice, Elian Gonzales style. We’ll see. Just in case, Jeb’s got Janet Reno warming up in the bullpen.
