Forgot to mention this...

But this deserves its own post. Some of you know my sister has autism. We're talking old-school, rocking, inability to speak, will need a caregiver her whole life autism. (She's made HUGE improvements. Nonetheless. Constant supervision.) Side note: I hate the phrase "rocking like an autistic child." Hate. If that's a part of your every day vernacular, you might want to rethink that. [/sidetrack]

In regards to Michael Savage, a true moron with a complete lack of intelligence, I have this to say: You, sir, are an idiot.

If you want to combat stupidity like this (and have one of the best experiences of your LIFE while doing so), may I suggest finding a local Special Olympics and volunteering your time? I can guarantee that you will come back from that happier than you've felt in a long time, and with a new respect for the hardship that parents of a child with a mental disability (and physical, I don't mean to count that out, either) face every day. And then see that all that hard work makes some truly amazing human beings in the end. (And I'm not talking about the athletes. *G*)

You won't regret it, I promise. And may I say that my sister happens to be a three-time NATIONAL champion soccer goalie and freestyle swimmer? Because we're pretty damn proud of her gold medals. And now I'm tearing up, but in the best way possible. <3 (Sunday was the FORTIETH anniversary for the Special Olympics. Pretty awesome.)
