Showing someone with Parkinson's is not emotional manipulation. This stuff goes on every day. It's a devastating disease and one that needs to be researched so that some day we can stop this terrible disease.

I'm autistic and I want a cure. Research on autism is funded by both the government and private funding. I don't think any of it hurts.

F you Rush. How pathetic to be so wedded to your beliefs and ideology that you have to personally attack a man who has severe Parkinsons

"I stated when I saw the ad, I was commenting to you about it, that he was either off the medication or he was acting. He is an actor, after all."

Rush is a pathetic anti-intellectual who knows nothing about science.

It is the medication for Parkinson's that actually makes the jerk movements worse. Without the medication, Michael J. Fox would essentially be in a catatonic state and the way you can tell he's on meds is the pronounced lack of his facial muscles kind of hanging there looking elongated.

It's really a sad social statement that people listen to Rush. I'd be ashamed of myself to actually take anything he says seriously.

I have zero tolerance for people who are anti-intellectual science bashers. Enough is enough, we've let them dictate the terms and frame the arguments for far too long. It's time they are all put in their place and told exactly where to go, in no uncertain terms.

Off topic, but I just upgraded to Firefox 2.0 and it underlines all the misspelled words now. You came up with six.

But, sorry, you're avoiding the truth yourself here. Adult stem cells do not have a proven track record, and, in fact, scientists have claimed to have hit a wall in dealing with them.

Well, do we really need to cure diabetes, Parkinson's, AIDS, etc. etc. etc.??? I mean, after all, who cares? We've managed to provide the means for 4-hr hard-ons!!!! Is there any greater medical achievement that we could strive for?

26 October, 1998

(CNS) – Ronald Reagan's Alzheimer's Disease has apparently become fodder for at least one late night television comic.

Bill Maher, host of the ABC television program Politically Incorrect, said of the former president, "he's nuts," during the show's Friday night broadcast. The comment was made during a discussion with author Shelby Steele regarding the relative merits of the Reagan presidency and that of Bill Clinton.

According to a transcript of the program downloaded from the network's Internet site, Steele was explaining some of his perspectives on the Reagan Administration when Maher interrupted him and said "He (Reagan) ran up the debt, he lied about something much more important than sex, and he's nuts."

Maher's comment was followed by laughter and then applause, according to the ABC transcript.

"It was more than a shot at my dad. It was a shot at anybody who's got a disease of that nature," the younger Reagan told CNS.

About four million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, according to the National Institute on Aging and the National Institutes of Health. The groups' Internet site describes Alzheimer's Disease as "one of the most common causes of the loss of mental function."

A disease that usually grows worse over time, Alzheimer's gradually destroys a person's memory, reason, judgment and language skills.
I agree. F Bill Maher.
