For the past two weeks, a great deal of attention has been given to Terri Schiavo. Schiavo was the Florida woman, who had remained in what doctors referred to as a persistent vegetative state for 15 years. A bitter debate between Schiavo's parents and her husband erupted over whether or not to remove the feeding tube. NPR's Ari Shapiro has been involved in the coverage of the life and death of Terri Schiavo and has this reporter's notebook.
