Dissing the Dead

If the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Act really was simply a redundant "feel good" bill, I'm not sure that it's vitally important that it wasn't passed. However, if someone objected to it based primarily on Reeve's support of stem-cell research (which the bill reportedly does not mention) and shot it down on that premise alone, it really is callous. And completely disrespectful so soon after Reeve's death. This article is a bit hyperbolic (and obviously partisan), but informative/infuriating nonetheless.
