Gravestone Digs?
Through Galley Slaves, I found this picture of Terri Schiavo's gravestone.

Depending on your point of view, you could take the side of the comments on the link above, or you could just see it as Michael Schiavo's consistency on the matter. Either way, I find it kinda creepy.

I guess it could also be a doctored photo or something. You never know on this here Internet.
Ralphie: Here's the original AP photo of the headstone. The image has not been altered.

I did an image search for Schiavo's headstone and coincidentally found a picture of Nancy Beth Cruzan's headstone. She was a famous groundbreaking case testing the right to refuse care. Look at it. It seems Mr. Schiavo borrowed the format from her. That would make it not at all an intentional slap at her parents.
The headstone confirms my impression of Michael Schiavo. I didn't want to leap to conclusions based on media information, but I think it became an ego thing for him: I win, you lose.

I don't think there's anyone to admire in the whole sordid story. Not Terri's parents (who were delusional), not the political actors (who should have respected the court decision), and certainly not Michael Schiavo.
