And in charge of distributing 'justice' is...

Tom Delay. Oh Tom, sometimes I tell myself that you can sink no lower. But, you rascal, you always prove me wrong don't you?

"This loss happened because our legal system did not protect the people who need protection most, and that will change," the Texas Republican said. "The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior, but not today. Today we grieve, we pray, and we hope to God this fate never befalls another."

Sadly Tom, in the a little world that some of us live in that I like to call REALITY, it happens to thousands of people and thousands of families everyday. Faced with deciding what their loved one would have wanted in the absence of an advance directive, these people struggle with reconciling the reality of what they see, and the hope that miracles do happen for some.
Well I, for one, am glad that Tom Delay is on the case of bringing justice to 'the men responsible for this..'. Because, I can think of no other leader who has his moral compass so finely tuned as to be able to deliver justice to anyone (said with tongue planted firmly in cheek). For those of us who believe God had his say 15 years ago when this tragic fate befell Terri Schiavo, its hard to imagine that there are people out there to whom justice must be brought.
Oh, to be sure, there are plenty of situations in this country alone where justice must be delivered--um, how about right to Tom Delay's doorstep.
As a sidebar, how come I get a skeevy feeling everytime Tom Delay says 'God'. When it comes out of his mouth it's tarnished with vanity, egomania and self-righteousness. I wonder if God feels the same way?
