    From reading the article, it is not clear to me who sought the court order. The article hints that it was "the doctors," but that is never made fully clear.

    Not so much a "death" panel as a "mercy" panel. I for one have it in writing that I am not to be kept alive by machines.

    After watching the Republicans, the religious right, and any other moron with a camera in his/her face touting their form of spiritual morality over the Terry Schivo affair can blow me. I found it quite amusing after the autopsy was completed that it was found that her brain was indeed dead and had been for quite some time.

    I hope the hospital in Detroit has enough common sense to keep their nose in their own business. I hope for the childs sake he is allowed to die, I hope for the parents that it can be done at home, and I hope that the media will leave these people to grieve in private.
