Celebrity Spokes People

From Left Brain/Right Brain: After jenny and Oprah
Is the autism community really so shallow that we are going into raptures because a celeb is speaking about a subject that vast majority of us could speak much more accurately and eloquently about? It seems some of us are.

Actually, I'm beginning to wish that celebrities had never discovered that autism existed. I think we'd all be a lot better off if famous people would just let those of us little people affected by autism speak for ourselves. I certainly wish researchers would be left in peace to explore autism. Instead many are chasing red herrings (you know which ones) or doing sloppy work in an attempt to get at some of the research money being thrown around willy-nilly to find cures and causes for autism.
