The buzz word of the year is "autism". Last year it was "bipolar". Have you seen the show on HBO called Autism the Musical? It's interesting. I was not aware of all the different types of autism. There seems to be different varieties (for lack of a better word). There was a girl about 14 years old who could not generate original speech. She repeated what you told her, like a parrot. She could sing beautifully though. How odd this disease is. How strange. How devastating. We need to find the cause of this disease. Around 1 out of 150 kids are diagnosed with autism. That number is getting down to the nitty gritty. More and more and more autism. Is it the additives in our food? Is it vaccinations? Is it our drinking water? Who knows. If you get a chance, try and watch that video. You just might learn something.
