In other news:

From Balloon Juice, we see this:

There is no evidence that Terri Schiavo's collapse 15 years ago was caused by criminal activity, said a prosecutor asked by Gov. Jeb Bush to look into the case.


"This consistency, coupled with the varying recollections of the precise time offered by other interested parties, lead me to the conclusion that such discrepancies are not indicative of criminal activity and thus not material to any potential investigation," McCabe wrote in a letter to Bush accompanying his report dated June 30 but not released until Thursday.


McCabe said there must be some fact or evidence indicating a criminal act caused the death to open a full homicide investigation in his office.


But they wrote, "It is obvious to us that there is no possibility of proving that anyone's criminal act was responsible for Mrs. Schiavo's collapse."

That last sentence is the crucial one. I know that people will still say they know Michael caused Terri's coma, and their statements should be ignored and ridiculed. That attitude of belief in something in spite of all the facts against it is more suited for alien abductees or psychic healing, and not baseless accusations.
