After all the hoopla about Terri’s death in 2005, researchers at the University of Ontario have proven that vegetative-state patients can communicate. And not just wiggling a finger. Stick them in an fMRI and watch the monitors light up with answers to direct questions. They’re even working on portable EEGs for family members to re-establish communication at home.

Makes you wonder if Terri’s husband regrets putting her down.
