No kidding. How was that not near the top of the checklist?

There is a wonderful French movie called " The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007)" about a man who can hear and see but can only communicate back by blinking one eye. Best movie I've seen in years.

Could the problem be that there were poorer standards for checking this 23 years ago? For the other 44 patients, how long ago had they been diagnosed as vegetative?

Seems plausible, but you'd think when newer, more definitive techniques came about, they'd retest the people who had been sitting around for years (assuming this isnt cutting edge technology). I'd be interested in the specifics of the other 44 too

Well, obviously someone dropped the ball in a big way at some point here, but I'm interested in the specifics of what happened, as I'm sure most are (not Diamond, apparently).

We're talking about 1986 right now, Diamond. If you really want to make a commentary on the politics of this issue, think of who was in power in 1986.
