To expose ... or hope fewer people notice

That’s the dilemma over the vile, disgusting cover story Rolling
Stone magazine did to trash George W. Bush. To take that as low as they
could reach, they trashed an innocent, impaired young woman who has
already suffered and died a gruesome death.

Terri Schiavo. 

Jill Stanek didn’t hesitate to expose this, tipped off to the story by Bobby Schindler. Terri’s brother.

We all talked today for ‘America’s Lifeline’. Jill said that post is getting far more comments than usual, and she usually gets a lot.
Suzanne (Terri’s sister) wondered how people….even fringe
satirists…could be so cruel and hateful. Bobby said the
Schindlers thought they couldn’t be shocked by anything anymore, but
this vicious assault on Terri (and on sensibilities) abolished any
limits they thought were left.

There is no line they will not cross now, Bobby said, and he’s right. What was it the minister said in the Capitol Rotunda in the recent ceremony commemorating Abraham Lincoln?

In the invocation, Rev. Barry Black quoted Lincoln as saying “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”…

Why is that so selectively applied?
