Michael J. Fox

Of all the topics covered in this conversation a subtle but powerful point is made; that parents need to be honest with their kids. There is a tendency for parents to assign feelings of good and bad when explaining something like homosexuality or race or other physical traits to their children. Micheal J. Fox makes the point that in the case of Parkinson's Disease his brain works differently. This is neither scary nor not scary, bad nor good, it just is what it is. As he said these words I thought I might stand and cheer for him had I been in the studio audience. But then again those that think in sound bites are too focused on the Rush Limbaugh fiasco to be bothered with reason.
