Oliver Sacks on Autism

First, a quote from today’s New York Times on nationally syndicated radio host Michael Savage:

Mr. Savage, above, referred to autism as “a fraud, a racket,” and asserted that what “99 percent” of children with autism most needed was a parent willing to tell them things like, “Don’t act like a moron.”

On a more enlightened note, here’s a fascinating video on autism hosted by noted author Oliver Sacks. Much of the focus is on a gifted autistic painter. She goes to museums and becomes fascinated by the security systems. This is really an interesting video, “Rage for Order” worth checking out.
