FYI: I (briefly) had a post with an Autism Speaks link and a way to donate to them by watching a Five for Fighting song. Here's why I took it down:

Michelle O'Neil has left a new comment on your post " The band, Five for Fighting, is generously donat...":

Sigh.

Now I have to go and get all political.

Fine to click on Autism Speaks for the video, some of their money might help someone I suppose, but AS is not a good friend.

They are squarely in the pocket of big pharma, think OJ looking for the "real killers" as far as getting down to the cause of autism.

The founders sold their own daughter down the river when she publicly stated the her son's regression was the result of his vaccines.

They have a ton of money. They have slick campaigns, but they're doing the old razzle dazzle.

Michelle knows WAY more about this than I do, and I trust her implicitly.

Oh yes, anytime I see anything from Autism Speaks, I delete it, or run. I will not support these people. Lots of info on them at Age of Autism.

Thanks for posting that!
