    Did you read the same article I did? Normally, I’m ready to indict the LA Times as a third-rate rag, but in this case it seemed plain to me that the writers had reviewed and understood the relevant parts of the decision. Maybe I need to check my eyeglass prescription, but I didn’t see Raich insisting that she would “not let them kill me” anywhere in this article. What am I missing here?

    You’re right–I checked the article again and they updated it to a more extensive discussion. Still, Racih’s NEW quote, “I feel like I’m dead man walking because I’m the first person in the country who has been told they do not have a right to life,” is also completely over the top.

    Laura is correct. I followed this from the early release of the story. The story has indeed been updated and changed. As usual it was not improved.

    You can’t find that phrase on the newswires any longer, at least Google news, but many blogs noted it and quoted it.
