This is old news but I just want to take note in order to remember.
"Authorities said a North Carolina man was arrested Friday by FBI agents on charges of soliciting the murder of a judge and the husband of Terri Schiavo, the severely brain-damaged woman at the center of a legal and moral tug of war.
Authorities said Richard Alan Meywes of Fairview, North Carolina, offered $250,000 for the killing of Michael Schiavo and another $50,000 for the death of Circuit Court Judge George Greer, who ordered Schiavo's feeding tube removed a week ago."
(source: CNN, 25 March 2005 )
You probably remember the case: Terri Schiavo was in persistent vegetative state for 15 years before his husband, Michael Schiavo, was legally allowed to remove his feeding tube - against the will of his parents and many life defenders (could that be considered life? thorny subject).
I will not make a statement against any of the parts. I just wanted to highlight the sheer stupidity of Richard Alan Meywes, who wanted to kill Michael Schiavo and George Greer for the sake of saving Terri's life.
