Seriously considering making birthday cupcakes for myself while I sit at home. Pathetic? Probably. Worth it? I think so. :)
The rationale for letting journalists have special legal protections when it...– TIME’s Barbara Kiviat on the Gizmodo-iPhone case, also noting that “an interested public is not the same as the public interest.” (via ckck)
Jared was on NBC13 last night for a promo for Rainbow Omega. It’s a great cause to check out if you haven’t heard of it.
Bryan Britt accepted to Center for Undiagnosed... →
I meant to post this weeks ago. This is the story we got the Jackson Sun to run for Bryan Britt as he went to the National Institute of Health’s Center for Undiagnosed Diseases. They did confirm that Bryan will not be able to work again, which amplifies their need for us to help them. If you have anything you can donate, follow the instructions on the page. It couldn’t go to a better...
He gets his rhythm from me
Why yes, that was my autistic brother that had an apparent irresistable urge to get up and dance to the karoke in the middle of Los Arcos… Twice.
Jonathan: Ze water will take care of it.
Me: Are you going to be talking in a French accent all day now?
Why yes, since you asked, the 3G iPad DOES come...

Is autism contagious?
I remember starting a new elementary school when I was the first grade. After one of my new friend’s parents heard that I had a brother with autism, Suzy* was told she shouldn’t be around me in case autism was contagious. That’s how far autism awareness has come since I was a kid. Of course, once Suzy’s parents learned a little more about autism, they realized how silly...
Islands of genius
When my parents first realized that something was different about Jared, he was initially diagnosed with mental retardation. They knew that wasn’t what was “wrong” with Jared, but it would be months before the diagnosis of “autistic” was actually given to him. Jared is very limited in a lot of ways, but he is also, in so many ways, a genius. He read the word...
Sooo this guy...
In overalls and a long white beard… Just rode by our house… On an old green tractor… That was converted into a buggy… Pulled by two brown clydesdale horses… It was like the redneck Santa Claus. Welcome to Henderson, Tenn.

Autism Awareness Month
So by now, you probably know I have an autistic brother. Since April is Autism Awareness Month, I’d like to let you know a little bit about the disorder that changed our lives. When Jared was diagnosed with autism a little over 20 years ago, one in every 10,000 children were born with autism. Today, it’s one in every 110. Seriously think about that stat for a minute. One in every 110...
