Thou Shalt Live!

Our congressional Solomon, Tom Delay, has declared we must investigate all circumstances before taking a life, so he is helping congress insert itself into the family torment over the feeding-tube. I wonder if, back home in Texas, he is similarly concerned for the lives of convicts on death row who have been represented by miserably paid, overworked, sometimes incompetent council, in cases that often have little resembling due process. Not that there aren’t people of whom, if they were hit by a bus in the street, I might say, “Well, they deserved it.” I just don’t think the highly fallible servants of the state, judges or juries, should be deciding the issue irrevocably. After all, it’s an adverserial procedure, trials are, not a family matter.
