No doubt my readers have been following the case of Terri Schiavo.

Since this story broke, I've read the following in two separate places...

Random Democrat: 'If Terri wasn't white, Republicans wouldn't care.'

Random Republican: 'If Terri wasn't white, Democrats would care.'

Not that either is particularly proveable other than by hearsay, the assurance that the people to whom you say either one buy into your assumptions beforehand, and both are just plain logical fallacies that contribute very little to the actual issue.

Anyway, the only thing I really find fascinating about these two quotes is that they come from two places independent of one another.
