There Should be a Nobel Prize for Staff Work

Until now, the greatest staff work in history was probably performed by the anonymous Hill worker who told Orrin Hatch that the book "The Exorcist" had a scene in it similar to an accusation made by Anita Hill against Clarence Thomas; surely that catch warranted a lifetime no-show job somewhere in government.  It has been surpassed, however, by the person who came up with the idea of subpoenaing Terri Schiavo to "testify" in the Senate.  As she is in a persistent vegetative state, it is unlikely that she will be able to contribute anything.  Regardless of one's stance on these issues, all advocates must take their hats off to people who can come up with ideas like these.
