“Science”, perhaps better known in academic circles as “the Grand Arch-Nemesis of the Bush Administration,” has once again reared its ugly, evolved, ozone-reducing head to embarrass the White House and its henchmen. Specifically, the startling revelation from Florida that autopsy results from that ol’ Terri Schiavo incident did, in fact, confirm the suspicion held by the vast majority of Americans that the martyr-in-question was, effectively, brain dead. No hope of revival. Like, dead. Doorknob. Et cetera.
From “Frist: Schiavo Autopsy Results End Case,” via the Associated Press:
“The diagnosis they made is exactly right. It’s the pathology, I’ll respect that. I think it’s time to move on,” Frist said on CBS’ “The Early Show.”
EARLIER: “Frist views video, disputes Schiavo diagnosis: Senator’s comments raise eyebrows in medical, political circles“, the Washington Post, March 19, 2005

Et cetera. Ad infinitum.
And how does one say “immunity” in Latin?
