He's also killing the English language

Michael Schiavo on "Nightline:"

"Terry will not be starved to death. Her nutrition and hydration will be taken away."

Um, Mr. Schiavo. That's how you starve somebody to death.

I can just see how this defense would go over in other cases:

"I did not strangle Kimberly Leach. I merely disrupted her oxygenation."

"Mrs. Yates did not drown her five children. She merely placed them under water for an extended period of time."

"Ms. Borden didn't kill her father and stepmother. She merely interupted their synaptical processes. With an ax."
