And even though it's not scientific, an online survey regarding Terri Schiavo here at CNN is eye-poppingly revealing. In answer to the question, "Who should decide Terri Schiavo's fate?", we have the results as of 5:40 PM today:
- Her husband: 73%
- Her parents: 22%
- Judges: 4%
- Politicians: 1%
So ... husband: 73%; politicians: 1%. Yeah, I'd call that a freakin' "mandate".
