Yeah, i totally agree with 'Meanie' in his views, so far as that Terrie Shaivo really should be let die. I don't want to sound like an insensitive bastar-d here, but its people like that that really do put a strain on the medical system, and a drain on Government rescources. Wait, that IS unfair, th...
