Let me come to the point. A child is dying. His parents are in custody. The time for recriminations and sober analysis is not now. Now is the time to end that by an immediate legal change of tactic and political input if necessary to implement the change. We cannot allow this quite appalling injustice to fester in indecision. I hope the lamps are burning late where it matters tonight. For the authorities need to act immediately. Every minute counts.
