Schiavo vs. New Orleans |

Schiavo vs. New Orleans

Dear Editor:If there is any doubt that the administration’s priorities are morally insane, just look at what happened in New Orleans and compare it to the Terri Schiavo case.In order to keep one woman alive who had long since been declared neurologically dead by her doctors, our president, Congress and state officials were practically stumbling over one another to come to her rescue. Where were these same “leaders” when many thousands of people who were very much alive couldn’t afford a ticket to escape the deluge?”Where’s the Little Boy who looks after the sheep?He’s in the haystack fast asleep.”Joel BrenceAspen
