13. Nah, I think some good local pizza or subs would be better.
Don't forget the beer and ice cold sodas!

15. well, the fried chicken would be easier to carry on my bike and
there would be enough to share if some of them had a change of heart.

3. Why don't you copy some flyers which ask these protesters
if they care at all about the other 60 patients in the hospice. And how difficult this must be for their families. And ask them if they have no decency. And ask them where their Christian charity is, on this the most solemn of Christian holidays. And ask them how dare they do this to the other patients. Ask them if they have no shame. Ask them how they look at themselves in the mirror.

14. Ask them to pray for the other hospice patients and their families.
They all are facing the same prognosis as Mrs. Schiavo.

My only sympathy lies with the patients (including Mrs. Schiavo), the families, and the employees.

The indignity of it all, especially in the name of God, makes me ill.

5. Ask them about how they feel about Greer being a Republican
Ask them if they feel used and betrayed?

8. I dunno. Those people are just looking for an outlet
to go ballistic.......you never know just what one thing will set them off.

Course, pictures would be nice and firtshand accounts are great. We'd get a much better picture from you of "ground zero", while the media is licking it's own ass.

11. Don't do it.
Do you want to be part of the circus that's keeping family and friends from seeing their non-Schiavo loved ones in that care home? They don't have anything to do with the nuttiness that's going on, but we DUers have a lot to lose if we start behaving like the nutjobs we oppose.

You could print out a few sheets of these cards and hand them out.

17. I drove around there yesterday and thought to myself, "These folks --
-- are bonkers."

It's up to you, but the people I saw with signs seemed really on-edge.

They're doing a pretty good job of mocking themselves as it is. We can't spare your vote. Especially in Florida!
