Irony

I may come across as a very non sensitive person after this question, but I have to ask. Does anyone else think it is ironic that Terri Schiavo died from her feeding tube being taken out after her heart stopped years ago from a chemical imbalance brought on by her eating disorder?

I am not trying to be mean. I was just wondering.

Everything else aside, now that you mention it, it does seem quite ironic. I thought it was strange that heart failure could be brought on by starvation and dehydration. I guess I thought heart failure was reserved for the sedentary, the obese, and people who abuse drugs.

Dear Anonymous,

I'm sorry if my comment offended you. However, it wasn't a joke. My comment was forthright and based on medical facts (see link below). Again, I'm sorry if it offended you, but facts are fact. Don't get mad at me. I don't make the rules.

Dang it! This text box keeps truncating the link. It is supposed to end with a 'dot htm'. I’ve crunched it through tinyurl.com. The following link should hopefully work:
