Terri Schiavo, Part Deux?

It looks like we have another Terri Schiavo type situation in Florida. A one year old was playing in the back yard in Fort Pierce and was bitten by a coral snake. The individual went inside and collapsed. From the Fort Pierce Tribune.

but he suddenly "just dropped down," Martyka said. Lying under the pool table, his breathing was shallow, he couldn't lift his head, and he was surrounded by vomit and waste.

Anti-venom was flown by jet helicopter from Miami to stop the effects, but he remains on a ventilator. Grim choices may have to be made. So, where's Jeb Bush, where's Bill Frist and Tom Delay. This individual must be a ward of the state so that there is no way he can be taken off of the ventilator. Why haven't the "fed heads" shown up outside the facility to hold a vigil. I guess the answer is that this isn't a young white woman.

BTW, Backdraft is a dalmation. God, what is that vet bill gonna cost?

Sorry, I just couldn't fucking resist.
