A powerful antidote to lunacy

This editorial in today's Star Tribune is worth a read. Despite their hiring of Katherine Kersten as a metro reporter, the Star Trib still seems to get it. We all want to know, where are the progressives on these extreme religious issues that are a massive distraction ploy by the administration? Meet Dr. Cranford, of Hennepin County Med. Center. Cranford is standing up on the Terry Schiavo issue, and he needs our support. Check these quotes from an interview he gave on the topics on Scarborough Country on MSNBC (NOT an objective news organization):
[Cranford:] "'Wait a minute. You are not accurate on a lot of things here. You're saying a lot of -- she's not starving to death. Do you understand that? She is dehydrating to death.'

Daniels [MSNBC] asked: 'Well, why do you say that? Tell us how you came to that conclusion?

Cranford responded: 'Can I tell you why? Because I have done this 25 to 50 times. I don't know how many times Joe has done it, but I've done it 25 to 50 times in similar situations. ....'

And so it continued, with both Scarborough and Daniels. At one point Daniels asked if a CAT scan had been done.

Cranford responded: 'The CAT scan is out there. It shows severe atrophy of the brain. The autopsy is going to show severe atrophy of the brain. And you're asking me if a CAT scan was done? How could you possibly be so stupid?'"

Emphasis mine. Emphasis necessary.

The second most important statement above, of course, is this one:
"You are not accurate on a lot of things here."
