Junkyard Blog on the Giant's Indifference.

HT to The American Mind on pointing out Junkyard Blog's note on how some of the giants of the blogosphere are indifferent to the Terri Schiavo case.

Specifically he refers to Glenn Reynolds aka The Instapundit. Glenn's philosophy is pretty much libertarian. I think it pretty obvious the libertarian take on this is going to be neutral at best and typically cheering on the death of Terri Schiavo. Michael and the MSM have done a good job of convincing (hoodwinking is more like it) the American public this is what Terri wants and Terri will feel no pain. In addition the libertarian world view is going to cast this whole affair as government interference as surely as a lion sees a gnu as food.

I know some of those who support the starvation and dehydration of Terri see this as a merciful thing to do and in a warped kind of way are supporting this murder with noble intentions.
