A Strange Parallel
Brian Tiemann has a post about the paranoia and suspicion which resulted from some recent car repairs, and his inability to know just what the hell is going on, and who's grifting whom. I couldn't help but notice a striking parallel with the Schiavo situation. In place of the dueling stories from two different repair shops, and an indication that one or the other of them must definitely be pulling a scam (but with no convenient way of figuring out which, since the complexity of the car results in the need to trust in "expert testimony"), we have the legal process contending with the "something is rotten" circumstantial evidence of the Schiavo case. It's an interesting parallel, and you might find it worth reading about Brian's perplexity, keeping the Schiavo case in mind.
