Governor Jim Gilmore is no longer in the way of a family's wish to let a comtose man die on his own.
Hugh Finn is the former Kentucky T-V anchorman who's been in what doctors call "a persistent vegetative state" for more than three years.
His wife had his feeding tube removed Thursday to allow him to die.
But Gilmore's attorney appealed to the Supreme Court yesterday, charging that Finn's death would be a "mercy killing," illegal in Virginia.
Within two hours, the Supreme Court rejected the Governor's request, saying "... withdrawal of artificial nutrition ... merely permits the natural process of dying and is NOT mercy killing or euthanasia."
[IN Q=I'm confused]
((MICHELE FINN: I'M CONFUSED THAT THE GOVERNOR FEELS THAT HE'S ABOVE THE LAW AND THINKS HE CAN INTERFERE JUST BECAUSE HIS PERSONAL FEELING ISN'T IN AGREEMENT WITH WHAT THE LAW IS, AND I DO NOT THINK THAT'S WHAT A GOVERNOR SHOULD BE DOING.))
[OUT Q=should be doing]
Last night, the Governor's spokeswoman released this statement:
"Governor Gilmore believes he had a duty as Governor to bring this matter to the highest court."
"The court has issued its ruling, and that brings this matter to a close."
Doctors say Finn could live up to two weeks without life support.

While more documentation from Ken Starr's investigation is being released, President Clinton is on the road for some Democratic fundraising events.
Clinton protestors and supporters met the president when he arrived in Philadelphia.
While most of the crowd was pro-Clinton, there were several carrying signs for the President to resign.
A fight erupted when this man wearing a teamsters shirt clashed with one of the protesters.
Meanwhile, transcripts from the testimony of the president's secretary and the taped conversations between Linda Tripp and Monica Lewinsky are being released to the public.
Jury selection is set to begin in less than a month for capital murder suspect, Emmett Cressell, Junior.

Nearly 800 years ago, the Bland County community of Bastian was the home of Native Americans.
An ancient village was discovered nearly thirty years ago, and has since been re- created.
In this week's "Time Off" segment, Kimberly McBroom takes us to the Wolf Creek Indian Village and Museum.

But the very distant PAST was brought to life in 1970, when construction of Interstate 77 began near Bastian.

((BING LARSON/ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR: THIS SECTION OF THE HIGHWAY, WOLF CREEK SNAKED DOWN THE VALLEY AND WOULD HAVE NECESSITATED A WHOLE SERIES OF BRIDGES. SO, THEY DIDN'T WANT TO DO THAT. THEY WANTED TO STRAIGHTEN OUT THE CREEK. BUT WHEN THEY APPROACHED THE LANDOWNER ABOUT DOING SO, THEY WERE INFORMED THAT SOME FOLKS HAD DISCOVERED WHAT THEY THOUGHT WAS AN INDIAN VILLAGE HERE.))
Sure enough, an archaelogist confirmed there was indeed an Indian village here, most likely the Sioux tribe.
Research dates the village back to 12-15 A-D.
It was entirely excavated and then RE- CREATED some 200 feet away from the original site, now at the botton of Wolf Creek.
Larson says the village is as authentic as possible, since there's no real documentation of this pre- historic era.
He says they rely heavily on feedback from the eight known Indian tribes in Virginia.
[SOT 11:42:15 ]
((BING LARSON/ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR: WE DO RELATE WITH ALL THE VARIOUS INDIAN CULTURES. WE LISTEN TO WHAT THEY KNOW AND TRY TO INCORPORATE THAT. WE SHARE NEW INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE AND IT'S A VERY EXCITING TIME FOR US.))
It's also exciting for the many school groups who visit the village, like this one from Christiansburg Middle School.

((NOW, SEE, THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A SPEAR THEY'D USE. HOW FAR DO YOU THINK YOU COULD THROW THIS THING? 50 FEET? WELL, THAT'S PRETTY FAR.))

((DANETTE TRAVIS/SIXTH GRADER: I'M NOT SURE IF I'D REALLY LIKE TO LIVE BACK HERE, BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE STUFF WE HAVE NOWADAYS. BUT IT'S REALLY INTERESTING.))
In the midst of all the ancient replicas is a NEW feature, this 48-hundred square foot conventional museum, which is opening soon.
It'll act as a showplace for artifacts and sculptures, like this bronzed statue.
[SOT 11:44:47 ]
((BING LARSON/ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR: IT'S A PLACE YOU TAKE YOUR TIME GOING THROUGH, AS YOU SEE FIT AND THERE'S AN AWFUL LOT OF STUFF TO TOUCH AND FEEL. THER'S A LOT OF HANDS- ON STUFF HERE. SO, IT'S A LOT OF FUN. I HOPE EVERYBODY COMES TO SEE US.))
The village and museum rely entirely on ticket sales and donations.
Admission is six dollars for adults, four dollars for children.
