Shorter Peggy Noonan:
Bill Frist has more of a right to decide Terri Schiavo's fate than her lawful husband whose opinion has been affirmed numerous times by the courts because her husband is a "strange-o" and lots of people who agree with him have beards.
Doctors removed Terri Schiavo's feeding tube Friday despite an extraordinary, last-minute push by Republicans on Capitol Hill to use the subpoena powers of Congress to save the severely brain-damaged woman.
Schiavo's family issued a statement on their Web site confirming that the tube had been disconnected. It is expected that it will take one to two weeks for Schiavo to die, provided no one intercedes and gets the tube reinserted....
Which is a big if.
Oh, and apologies for failing to mention that one of the most prominent supporters of Terri Schiavo's parents in their fight against her husband and the courts is Randall (Operation Rescue) Terry.
