Okay, here’s a quick quiz to see how bright you are!

The following quotations are from today’s New York Times. Read them carefully and thoughtfully, then proceed to the Key Question that follows them.

Quotation #1

Mr. Felos, who spent more than an hour with the stricken woman on Monday afternoon, disputed that description. “Ms. Schiavo’s appearance, to me, was very calm, very relaxed, very peaceful,” he said. “I saw no evidence of any bodily discomfort whatsoever.”

Quotation #2

As her doctors have said and the courts have ruled, Mr. Felos said, Ms. Schiavo is too brain-damaged to be aware of the world around her.

Quotation #3

Mr. Felos said Monday that Ms. Schiavo had never been on a morphine drip. She has received two five-milligram suppository doses of morphine in the last 11 days, most recently two days ago, he said. Each dose was minimal, he said, and would have worn off in about four hours.

Quotation #4

Another doctor with long experience treating patients at the end of life, Douglas Nelson of Hickory, N.C., said that providing morphine to a patient in a persistent vegetative state was unnecessary because the patient would be unaware of pain or discomfort. But, Dr. Nelson said, “It’s not uncommon for the nurse to suggest, ‘Let’s just give her a suppository to be on the safe side.’ “

Now, here’s the Key Question to see how bright you are:

Key Question: Are these jackals lying? (Y) Yes (N) No (D) Duh, I think the Republicans are politicizing it and it’s a family matter.


  1. David Gish says

    Don’t know what I can add to your compleat commentary on this sad event, except to say that wherever Satan holds sway, a culture of death prevails. Witness the spiritual darkness in third world countries where suicide is rampant. Witness the Islamic faithful who, taking the words of their prophet to heart, are commited to the death of everyone including themselves. And in God-blessed America, we put to death the innocent and the helpless. Well, God has a word for these champions of "human rights:"

    "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44)
