Human Life vs Gallon of Gas

Our good friends over at Musing Minds have a really terrific piece concerning the Greer court's reliance on totally inappropriate standards and precedents.

In determining what weight to give the irreparable harm that will come to Terri in the latest stay application to keep her alive (at the heart of an injunction proceeding the court must weigh the irreparable harm versus, among other things, the strength of the potential case) guess what type of case the court principally considered. An accused on death row? A terrorist about to be deported to a state where he'll be put to death?

Nope. The court in Schiavo relied on a case about a gas dealer regarding the sale of below cost gasoline.

Swing over there and read this in it's entirety, it's an eye opener.
