Song for a blue day.....Autismshutsthehellup....oy, I need a cigarrette....

Tomorrow is a Long Time
Live
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2
1971

If today was not an endless highway,
If tonight was not a crooked trail,
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time,
Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all.
Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin',
Yes, and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin',
Only if she was lyin' by me,
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

I can't see my reflection in the waters,
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain,
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps,
Or can't remember the sound of my own name.
Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin',
Yes, and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin',
Only if she was lyin' by me,
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

There's beauty in the silver, singin' river,
There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky,
But none of these and nothing else can touch the beauty
That I remember in my true love's eyes.
Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin',
Yes, and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin',
Only if she was lyin' by me,
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

Autism on C.N.N....NO AUTISMSPEAKS!!!!!


Sanjay Gupta did a small segment on Autism on C.N.N. this morning. So small, it is not even on the web page. I waited with baited breath...I have always had a great respect for Dr. Gupta as he seems to "get it" in the same way I do in so many things. I was waiting to be disappointed...

He had on a family, whose oldest son was Aspergers (post PDD-NOS), and whose oldest daughter had a more severe form of autism. He mentioned the one in 166, but gave no reasons except doctors think it is genetic, and ............................

No tug at the heartstrings because of the difficulty for parents...No "scarey" pictures to imply trajedy but realistic ones...I'm going to have to paraphrase because the link isn't up but, the father ACTUALLY IMPLIED HIS CHILDREN WERE A BLESSING!!! THE AUTISTIC ONES, I'M TELLIN' YA, NOT THE "NORMAL" ONES...AND THE THING THAT REALLY GOT ME WAS NO LINK TO ALLISON'S FRIGHT-SITE!

What the hell is wrong with these people (tongue in cheek...)?

Dr. Gupta, I still love you!
