Businessman Offers $1 Million to Keep Terri Schiavo Alive

Read all about it right here. The man who offered it is a hero, in my book. But from Terri Schiavo's husband's point of view... he's in a strange position.
If he takes the money he's an a--hole for not letting her live until he was offered money.
If he doesn't take the money he's an a--hole for not letting her live, anyway, but we can assume there is some kind of principle involved. Unless, of course, the rumors that he caused her brain damage and fears she'll recover and testify against him are true, in which case he's MORE of an a--hole.
This is horrible, terrifically compelling story. And it gets more gruesome and fascinating as the weeks go on. Let's hope he taks the money and runs. He's an a--hole either way- he may as well be a rich one.

Update. a-hole has rejected the offer... He says he once promised Terri he would not allow her to be kept alive by "artificial means." A feeding tube qualifies as "artificial means," according to a-hole, and he is judge and jury. So she will starve to death, I guess. Or maybe she will die of thirst.
I guess a-hole thinks some promises are more important than others. It is okay to screw other women and have children outside of his marriage, but it isn't okay to let Terri live. Hmmm...
