Last Rites

In all the sound and fury over the Schiavo story I missed this bizarre episode until now.
After remarks by Randall Terry -- an activist against abortion rights who has been acting as a spokesman for Terri Schiavo's family, the Schindlers -- members of a group calling itself the Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigades seized control of the microphones and blasted Terry as a "Christian fascist thug"
trying to interfere in "the most intimate affairs of life and death."
Self-proclaimed Communists screaming about fascism. Tense crowds. Numerous arrests. A Florida town is like Central Europe in the Thirties.

Meanwhile Shiavo has recieved Last Rites. As sad as this is, I hope it is over soon. If this lasts much longer things could get out of hand.
