    Clearwater, FL ( -- The family of Terri Schiavo is upset by an Associated Press news report that appeared in hundreds of newspapers on Thursday and Friday. Bob and Mary Schindler say the report makes it appear that eating orders caused Terri's collapse in 1990 when she did not have such problems. They say other evidence shows physical abuse could have been the cause. Written by reporter Vickie Chachere, the AP news story says the "lost lesson" in the Terri Schiavo controversy is combating eating disorders. "It is a twist lost on no one close to the case: A woman...

    Texas Legal FReepers, I need your help. In very brief: my grandfather's second wife (of around five years; they're in their early 90s) has more or less abandoned him. She misrepresented herself as quite well-off, and after they were married, come to find out she's not all that moneyed. That wouldn't be a problem, except she's bankrupted him. My grandfather retired from Shell in 1976, and between his pension and his investments, he saved up a VERY nice nest egg for him and my grandmother. After she left us and he remarried, everyone thought they'd live inside their income just...
