The Last Word on Schiavo

The best thing I read this weekend was Joan Didion's long, serious essay on Theresa Schiavo in the New York Review of Books.

Didion takes a pretty even-handed approach to the story and as a result emerges at the only position possible for people of good will: Something terrible and unjust happened in Florida. Didion doesn't come all the way out of the closet, but her allusions make it very clear where her sympathies lie.
