Seems to me the tale of Mom and Dad Schindler's (including the "Right to
Life" folks certain politicians' right to run again) gothic attempt to keep
Terri Schiav "alive" is one more twist on Faulkner's tale of Emily keeping
some version of Homer Brown "alive" with flowers et al as his long dead body
goes skeletal and to dust, resting there for years upon their marriage bed.
Full of sad pathos and beat the Reaper craziness then, and not too much
different now. One can only image local southern wax museums preparing for
Terri's next appearance - like currently on Fox Network, 'smiling', hour by
I guess it's old American tradition getting an over-the-top revival.
Jeezus. If only! Oh yes, I am cynical enough to imagine Adobe Photoshop
images of Terri on the Cross 24/7 on TV Easter Sunday.
Or maybe it's just Millennium fever? Or the quality of certain theocracies?
I've had it. R.I.P (finally) Terri!
