An independent guardian concluded there is "no reasonable medical hope" that a severely brain-damaged woman at the center of a right-to-die legal battle will improve, according to a report released Tuesday.


But as long as there is controversy in the case of Terri Schiavo, guardian Jay Wolfson is asking to remain on the case in hopes of settling the fight among her husband, her parents and Gov. Jeb Bush, according to the report, which was delivered to Bush.


Wolfson also recommended that swallowing tests be conducted to see if Terri would be able to eat on her own.


The University of South Florida professor was appointed by a judge last month to investigate whether Schiavo's husband, Michael, should be allowed to have a stay lifted and remove her feeding tube. Michael Schiavo had the feeding tube removed in October, but a hastily passed law allowed Bush to have it reinserted six days later as her parents, Bob and Mary Schindler, had requested.


Wolfson tried to broker a settlement among Michael Schiavo, his in-laws and the governor, according to the report, but negotiations broke down Sunday.


Bush said nothing in Wolfson's report has changed his mind that it was right to keep Terri Schiavo alive.

The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

Poor woman.
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.
