Just writing that title made me slightly ill.
You'd never say that to anyone who got cancer would you?
You'd never say "you deserve it" to a person who got hit by car or hurt in an industrial accident, would you?
Think about that when I tell you that radio host Michael Savage said children diagnosed as autistic are really just brats who need a father to straighten them out.
The first thing I thought of when I heard about this was were my dear friends with autistic children.
People like Kim Stagliano whom I've mentioned here before.
People like my buddy Jeff Cohen, an ace novelist.
People like the folks I've only met casually through Writers on Autism.
I'm very much in favor of Michael Savage being free to say whatever cold, cruel, publicity hungry foul drivel he cares to spew.
I'm even more in favor of my right to tell him he's not just wrong, he's going to enjoy the flip side of publicity for awhile.
Entertainment my ass.
