My Letter

I don't know if the Wall Street Journal will print my letter, but here it is:

Editor - John Fund thinks that liberals are being inconsistent with their different approaches to the Terri Schiavo and Elian Gonzales cases. Actually, they are being perfectly consistent. Add both examples to the reams of evidence that liberals are motivated by feelings over facts, reason or logic.

Liberals in the media were shockingly unconcerned for basic facts in both cases that made each extraordinary. With Elian Gonzales, liberals were clamoring for his immediate return to his father in Cuba with no way of knowing if his father may have preferred his son be raised with the freedoms and opportunities in the United States. Certainly those were his mother's wishes. Equally certain, it was not Castro's.

The same rush to judgment was evidenced with Terri Shiavo. A certain diagnosis of her condition and the dubious standing of her estranged husband were afterthoughts to the question of Terri's "right to die".
