From the "you gotta be kidding me" file...

Is it possible that the individuals who expressed support through emails to the Schindler family are now regretting it? That's quite possible according to an editorial in Monday's Washington Post. It seems the Schindler family...
"...have authorized a conservative direct-mailing firm to sell a list of their financial supporters, making it likely that thousands of strangers moved by her plight will receive a steady stream of solicitations from anti-abortion and conservative groups.

"'These compassionate pro-lifers donated toward Bob Schindler's legal battle to keep Terri's estranged husband from removing the feeding tube from Terri,' says a description of the list on the Web site of the firm, Response Unlimited, which is asking $150 a month for 6,000 names and $500 a month for 4,000 e-mail addresses of people who responded last month to an e-mail plea from Ms. Schiavo's father. 'These individuals are passionate about the way they value human life, adamantly oppose euthanasia and are pro-life in every sense of the word!'

"Privacy experts said the sale of the list was legal and even predictable, if ghoulish."

I'm speechless.

To be followed, no doubt, by dueling "as told to's" by the Schindlers and Michael S, each sentimentally sketching out the authors as heroes serving Terri...and a greater cause.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
