As if the Award I Gave Him Was not Enough

Blogs for Terri has a link to Schiavo Judge To Be Honored - from TBO.com. It seems that Judge Vlad George Greer is being given the Special Justice Award by the Pasco Bar Association. I had to resist the temptation to base this post on the euphemistic use of "special" in referring to the mentally hadnicapped as that would have been rather tasteless. Then again the Pasco Bar Association have elevated tastelessness to new depths with this award. I guess it's the thanatocrats way of saying "Nyah! Nyah! We won" to the rest of us.
"His professionalism and integrity was punctuated by the way he handled the Schiavo case,[sic...no quotation marks] said Alan Scott Miller, a New Port Richey lawyer and member of the West Pasco Bar Association." Apparently the Pasco Bar Association has been associating in too many bars and has forgotten what "integrity" means. If the man had any integrity he would have recused himself because of the involvement of the hospice he used to be a director of.
This is not the first "lifetime achievement" award Vlad Greer has recieved for his work on the Schiavo case. As you may recall, I gave him a lifetime achievement "Get Your Head Outta There Award" back on February 26. Here it is again for those who missed it"

UPDATE: Crystal Clear has picked up on this as well.
