In response to some prodding by FF and others: a confession.

The piece on Autism isn't going as well as I had hoped. I'm having trouble getting the relevant video to play on my computer. It's about Autistic people, talking about their own situations. I thought it was very thought provoking when I saw it initially, but I wasn't making notes at the time. So I have had to go back and review it.

In the meantime, while I'm trying to master the technology, I've been sidetracked. In this case, it's been by two other writers, and their concerns about the demise of newspapers (particularly good newspapers). You'll find that little project on my «Bears Noting» blog. Once I get that written.

Okey Dokey, then.

Did I mention to you that one of my children has Asperger's?

Well he does. He is also Dyslexic, ADD, ODD and Deaf in one ear.
Quite a journey, don't you think? x

Oh, Natalie, what a challenge! In a house of seven.

Is it from You-Tube? If so, copy and paste the code box to the right of the video into your post directly.

Actually, this is a CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) documentary. Unfortunately the CBC has been doing some strange stuff with its on-line material, so I'm having real problems with the streaming video.

GOOD NEWS -- I have been able to access the written interview material on which the documentary was made. It will take me longer to wade through the stuff, but I'll have better source material -- always a plus for a journalist.

Happy wading
