"I'll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat
who hasn't been told to cut the act out. That's what autism is. What do
you mean they scream and they're silent? They don't have a father around
to tell them, 'Don't act like a moron. You'll get nowhere in life. Stop
acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don't sit there crying
and screaming, idiot."
Michael Savage (7/16)

Last week my son Ryan and I wrote of talk show host Michael Savage's
remarks concerning Autism.
Ryan's beautiful eight-year old daughter has
been diagnosed with Autism. Ryan and his wife fight for Rebecca's rights
and happiness nearly everyday. We've received some supportive email, but
we have also been subjected to rather nasty attacks from Savage
apologists.

Savage even read a letter of support from the CEO of his one of his long
time sponsors, gold and silver trader, Swiss America, Craig R. Smith. Smith, a columnist at the far-right WorldNet Daily, isn't unfamiliar with the
bomb-throwing territory, calling MSNBC, Time Magazine, Chris Matthews and
Michael Isakoff, "unpatriotic haters of this country." In his note, which
Savage read to listeners on Tues night (7/22), Smith called people like
my son and I, "Neanderthals" for questioning Savage's integrity.

I don't have the time, to respond to each of the good doctor's defenders
indivisually. but I wanted to clear up a few misconceptions that Savage, his sponsor and many of his fans might have about myself, Ryan and literary terms in general.

1. Neither of us are Neanderthals. Neither were Ryan's grandparents who
would have had to have been for he or I to be considered such. Not
hyperbole as much as questioning your standard evolution, which I
understand you're not entirely sure of.

2. We're not Sodomites either. This isn't even close to hyperbole as
we're not even a little bit Sodomite. Nothing against Sodomites, but our
wives and past girlfriends can attest to the fact that we could barely
talk them into READ THE REST OF THE STORY HERE.
