Is it time to pull the Pope's breathing tube?

As the unfortunate Schiavo matter illustrates, life that depends on a tube, especially a life that doesn't look like fun anymore, might as well end. The Pope isn't looking well at all, needs a tube to even breathe, and we have only the word of 'sources' that he really is "determined" to keep going.

This AFP story: 'Frail but determined pope appears to faithful at St Peter's Square' quotes, "A source close to his entourage [who] told AFP that 'the pope is not so bad' and that despite his public silences, 'he speaks with his aides. He is lucid'." Sure, and a wink's as good as a nod.
