I'm Starting to Smell a Rat

Everyone who reads this page on a regular basis knows my stand on the Schiavo case. It is basically over with the only thing left to do is take care of the corpse. But something is fishy. How has she lived so long without food and water?

I have read lots of pages about this. Check here, here, or here. The most optimistic estimate I have found is that a person could live for a week tops without water. That is a normal, healthy person. Terry Schiavo has been bedridden for 15 years and we are now on day 12 of the death watch!

Someone is hydrating her - there can be no question. So what the hell is going on here? If all of the legal options are exhausted and no one is going to do anything else, why is someone keeping her alive?
