Dear media, leave the Schumachers alone

Coverage of Schumacher's struggle is getting sillier and sillier

The Argentine daily Ole has reported to have discovered the final will and testament of Michael Schumacher, and published a report based on that document.

Now, forgive my brash comments but what does this have to do with his struggle for life? Sure, its an important document for the family in this situation, but something far from their minds.

As we all know, Michael Schumacher has been fighting for his life in a French hospital after suffering a major injury to his head and brain while skiing in December.

Since that day, the reports have all been on his health and the brutal antics of the media covering his injury and now, hopeful recovery.

Add one to the brutal antics of the media column.

The Ole reported that his estate be split up among his three family members, being his wife and two children. So? Do you feel enlightened?

I am not a religious man myself, but I do believe in karma. The only thing we can do for Schumacher is keep him in our thoughts (and prayers) and hope for a full and successful recovery. Thats it. Thats all we can do.

Corinna Schumacher has even pleaded with the media to leave them alone, after a member of the press dressed as a priest tried to gain access to his hospital room. Digging up their confidential documents is not leaving his family alone.

For the daily publication Ole, in Argentina, Michael Schumacher's will was an important story to follow that day. I don't read that paper myself, but I think that the electricity issues, the Dakar Rally and its crumbling economy seem to be more conventional, non-intrusive stories to be following.

Shame on you Ole. Let's just do what we know how and that is keep Schumacher, and his family in our thoughts and hope that they do not have to use his will.
