After both Congress and Florida’s Legislature failed to pass laws to protect Terri Schiavo and others like her, Congress took the next bext step. It issued congressional subpoenas to Terri, Michael Schiavo, Bob & Mary Schindler, and Terri’s doctors. Those subpoenas make it a felony to interfere with a congressional witness and so Judge Greer has issued a temporary stay. All the details are in the story.

This is only temporary, but it’s a step in the right direction. Talk about waiting until the last minute.

Update:Greer has reinstated his execution order. Stay tuned.
