Thomas Sowell: The Cruel and Unusual Murder of Terri Schiavo

'Terri Schiavo's only crime is that she has become an inconvenience -- and is caught in the merciless machinery of the law. Those who think law is the answer to our problems need to face the reality that law is a crude and blunt instrument.
Make no mistake about it, Terri Schiavo is being killed. She is not being "allowed to die." '

Thomas Sowell is a leading conservative writer and the author of one of my favorite books A Conflict of Visions. He's a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University and in 1998 was elected to the American Philosophical Society (philosophical in it's original definition denoting the study of the sciences.) Mr. Sowell's article can be read here.
