Live blogging: Terri Schiavo, Part 3

Called the Committee on Government Reform and got a very frustrated receptionist. Once she found out I was a blogger, she remained friendly, but it was obvious she was as far as I was going to get, and I knew more about what was going on than she did. She did slip and say that she was only letting in...I understood the rest to mean "real" journalists.

Called the Florida US Marshall's office back and the guy whose machine they kept transferring me to has now "stepped out of his office".

I did get some more info about why the Federal bills were so confusing. There were 5 separate bills introduced. Harry Reid apparently led the fight to get all the Democrats to agree to one, which they knew would have little effect, and thus the Republicans wouldn't want. That way Reid and his cohorts could lie when people called their office and say that they were not blocking "the bill." Why this subterfuge wasn't explained earlier I don't know. Why Republicans Congressmen are not working with bloggers to get this information out, is also a mystery to me.
