florida's high court rules jeb bush's anti right-to-die law unconstitutional

it is simply brilliant to learn that today, the florida supreme court declared unconstitutional a law, rushed through the state's legislature last fall that gave gov. jeb bush the power to overrule a court judgment that feeding tubes could be removed from terri schiavo, a severely brain-damaged woman who has been on life support since 1990, in order to to keep her body "alive" against her husband's (and her own) wishes.

the unanimous court agreed the law violated the separation of powers between the judicial branch and the legislative and executive branches.
