I‚Äôm sobbing as I type this because I just don‚Äôt think I can take anymore‚Ä¶
I hoped and prayed that we had reached a point to where everyone would just shut-up about the whole thing and we could get back on with our lives. So the autopsy results for Terri Schiavo were released and they seem to vindicate her husband, Michael. There was no proof of abuse and the medical examiner agreed with the other doctors who said that Terri‚Äôs tragic condition was irreversible. On the other hand, the family disputes the autopsy results and I‚Äôve already talked to a couple of people that say ‚Äúwell, how can the doctors know for sure?‚Äù
I‚Äôm not here to argue the case from one side or the other. I just want it to go away. Sadly, that doesn‚Äôt seem like it‚Äôs going to happen anytime soon because the New York Post is reporting that Michael Schiavo is in New York shopping around a book proposal about Terri‚Äôs life to publishers. Represented by agent David Vigliano and co-authored by David Ritz, the book deals with ‚Äúthe seminal case in the right to die with dignity story,‚Äù the agent said.
Now, of course, we‚Äôre going to hear howls of protest from all the folks who vilified Michael Schiavo and the folks that said Terri could be saved. They‚Äôre going to point to this as proof that he‚Äôs only interested in money, just like he was after the life insurance policy and all that. They‚Äôre going to rant and rave about how crass this is and how he shouldn‚Äôt profit from being, in their opinion, a murderer.
And how are they going to do all this ranting and raving? How are they going to fight back and set the record straight? In a book, I‚Äôm sure. With a big contract, I‚Äôm sure.
I bet that Terri‚Äôs family signs a book deal within two weeks of Schiavo inking his contract.
I‚Äôm not picking sides here, both camps should just go quietly back to reparing their lives in my opinion. I just don‚Äôt think I can handle much more of this ‚Äúdebate.‚Äù
