Ms. Mitchell relates this current experience with one of her "girlfriends". This column was entitled appropriately, It's arrogance to decide it's time for Schiavo to die. It was arrogant for Mr. Schiavo to decide that and in some ways it was arrogant for the courts and those who wanted her to die to decide that. It doesn't matter if she was in a persistent vegitative state. In any case read this column.
