Once more for the record

Terry Schiavo was not abused:
An autopsy on Terri Schiavo backed her husband's contention that she was in a persistent vegetative state, finding that she had massive and irreversible brain damage and was blind, the medical examiner's office said Wednesday. It also found no evidence that she was strangled or otherwise abused.

And recovery was impossible:
"The brain weighed 615 grams, roughly half of the expected weight of a human brain," he said. "This damage was irreversible, and no amount of therapy or treatment would have regenerated the massive loss of neurons."

I look forward to apologies and retractions from the amateur neurologists who spent months baselessly accusing Michael Schiavo of abuse, murder, and worse.
