Did Michael do it?

I'm a simple man so I don't get it.

I don't understand the profit to a civil society in further hassling Michael Schaivo, as Flordia Gov. Jeb Bush is doing.
Mr. Bush wants to investigate how long it took Michael to call 911 in the wee morning hours of Feb. 25, 1990, when Terri collapsed into the 15-year death so recently ended.

Seems like the call was made at 5:40 a.m., but Michael said on television 13 years later he'd made the call about 5 -- and testified in a medical malpractice trial in 1992, two years after the fact, that he'd made the call about 4:30 a.m. Note here "trial", as in an examination of the facts of who did what when, from the hallway where Terri collaped through the emegency room to which the paramedics rushed her to the long death from which the doctors couldn't save her.

Note next that, at trial's conclusion, the doctors paid off. No fault of any sort attached to Michael, who has been consistent in saying he immediately called 911 when he found Terri collapsed in a hallway.

But Mr. Bush, who fought to the last trench in the cruel effort to keep Terri alive, sees the need for an "investigation." He thinks we need to subject poor Michael Schaivo to an additional kicking.

I don't get it, but then, I am a simple man.

I sure hope all those 24-hour "news" stations don't take a stab at creating a "Did Michael Do It?" story, since we don't need more mindless clutter. But that's probably hoping for too much sanity.

Like I said, I don't see the profit to a civil society.

The autopsy results should have been the end, for heaven's sake.
