TRIED CALLING HOUSE SPEAKER HASTERT AND MAJORITY LEADER DELAY

In calling Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert this morning, I received only an answering machine message and was unable to leave a voice mail for him, as the recorded message indicated his voice mail was "full."

In calling House Majority Leader Tom Delay, I was able to speak with a human being, but he could not answer my questions with respect to whether or not the subpoenas have been served yet and to whom. He was courteous and tried to refer me to a "staffer" who might have that specific information, but she was unavailable, so I left her a voice mail message indicating my concern that sufficient action would occur in time to preclude the removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube.

This report from Fox News indicates the subpoenas will be delivered in time and televised reports from the Fox News Channel indicate they have already been served. Let's trust this is correct.

There's just one hour to go! Keep working, Everyone! And, keep praying!

UPDATE: The Fox News Channel is reporting that five subpoenas have been delivered to: Terri Schiavo; Michael Schiavo; the hospice administrator; each of Terri's two attending physicians.
