OK, I'm touching the Shiavo case...

So, there's been much discussion on the IRC channel about the Shiavo case, mostly by Sonya who has been eyeing this with the sympathetic eye of a therapist. She's been maintaining that she feels sorry for the parents, because she thinks that they have based so much of their life in their daughter's recovery, they just can't see that she really is unrecoverable.

Until now, I favored that sympathetic view. Until I saw this.

The parents of Terri Schiavo have authorized a conservative direct-mailing firm to sell a list of their financial supporters, making it likely that thousands of strangers moved by her plight will receive a steady stream of solicitations from anti-abortion and conservative groups.

Uh, that's just low. Seriously, selling out your supporters to spammers. My sympathy is withdrawn.
