I agree!
Donations are higher whenever the "IT" story is hot. Terri has been dead 5 years,people move on.
Maybe it is time for the Schindler's to stop selling off Terri piece by piece.
For 2-3 hours, the audience will be in a persistent vegitative state.

92 bucks? I wonder if Mr Travis is donating his time or is he making a buck off Mrs Schiavo too
Well, I would expect some goes to pay for the site and entertainers. But I bet Bobby is licking his chops. Guess it pays to lie :-)
Really sad, if you ask me :-(

I beg to differ, they will be in a trance, glassy eyed from hearing their religious speakers and then Bobbyshortpants presentation of "Terri-the lies continue".

Love how he drags out all Terri's old baby pictures and then the only pictures they snuck out which are at least 10+ yrs old. Cannot have the folks know that Terri was much worse than just having an "eating issue".

Did he cause her death?

Terri Schiavo was diagnosed as Neocortically Dead.

The Terri Schiavo’s autopy results, released on June 15, 2005, reported that the Terri’s brain had shrunk to about half its normal size. The cause of death was dehydration from removal of the feeding tube, the autopsy found Schiavo suffered from severe and irreversible brain-damage.
The examination of her remains confirmed she was not strangled, poisoned, bludgeoned or starved to death.
Examination of Schiavo’s nervous system by neuropathologist Stephen J. Nelson, M.D., revealed extensive injury. The brain itself weighed only 615 g, only half the weight expected for a female of her age, height, and weight, an effect caused by the loss of a massive amount of neurons. Microscopic examination revealed extensive damage to nearly all brain regions, including the cerebral cortex, the thalami, the basal ganglia, the hippocampus, the cerebellum, and the midbrain. The neuropathologic changes in her brain were precisely of the type seen in patients who enter a PVS following cardiac arrest. Throughout the cerebral cortex, the large pyramidal neurons that comprise some 70% of cortical cells – critical to the functioning of the cortex – were completely lost. The pattern of damage to the cortex, with injury tending to worsen from the front of the cortex to the back, is also typical. There was marked damage to important relay circuits deep in the brain (the thalami)– another common pathologic finding in cases of PVS. The damage was, in the words of Thogmartin, "irreversible, and no amount of therapy or treatment would have regenerated the massive loss of neurons."
 
Persona - The personality that a person adopts and presents to other people.
 
That is true,“food and water” or force feeding and drowning patients could be painful if the cognitive and conscious patient can interpret pain. You have to be conscious and cognitive to feel (interpret) pain. Is that why the medical profession uses anesthesia?

Your Brain Stem Does Not…
 
Your brain stem does not provide the functions of menal process of knowing, including aspects such as awareness, perception, reasoning , and judgement.

So, Terri Schiavo was not just brain injuried or brain disabled.

Non – Cognitive cause by the lost of her cortex
 
Terri Schiavo was diagnosed as Neocortically Dead and in a Persistent Vegetative State (PVS)

She was just a physical body as opposed to being a mental person. Her body had only reflex reactions to her physical world without the ability of mental interpretation of any physical stimulus or pain (No cognition).

Terri Schiavo’s body was allowed to pass legally with removal of the PEG.
