"In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out".
He is way off on this one. I'm not sure if he is even mixing up what he thinks is ADD and really knows what autism is. Autism, for which there is no blood test, is not a cookie cutter syndrome and there is a wide spectrum of how severe the symptoms for individual kids can be. There is no doubt, however, that it exists and I doubt it is over diagnosed. Savage wouldn't know that because he doesn't have the experience of seeing thousands of kids in the office setting for comparison. That being said, I am a little disturbed by the planned demonstrations to protest the radio talk show host. It is as if he committed a crime. I believe it is a free country and there is freedom of speech, right? People need to chill out and stop taking things so personally. When we overreact to everything that isn't politically correct we become a "brat" who needs to be told "to cut it out".
