Cashing in on the controversy

If Michael Shiavo wants to make friends with his detractors this is not the way to do it:

PUNTA GORDA -- Michael Schiavo is co-writing a book with author Michael Hirsh to tell his side of the end-of-life case that divided much of the country. Schiavo's wife, Terri, suffered a brain injury in 1990 that left her in what some doctors called a ''persistent vegetative state." She died March 31 after a bitter court battle between her husband and her parents. Hirsh expects the 280-page book, ''Terri: the Truth," to be available just before the first anniversary of Terri's death. (AP)
