“This is what happens when 'reporting' turns into end-to-end 'commentary' - I dont want to hear the inflections, gasps, and 'thoughts' of these would-be journalists and anchorpeople - just report instead... not every, infact, hardly any, news item needs the drama these talking heads inject into every breath... save it for when it's warranted PLEASE. Go watch some 1950's news footage - preferably from the BBC”

“Yeats nailed it a while back... complete with with a nod to rising christian fundamentalism at the end....

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned.
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?”

“This poem has been on my mind for a long time now.

along with a more recent ( though now "vintage") song by Bob Dylan:

"All your seasick sailors they are rowing home,
Your emptyhanded armies are now going home
Your lover who just walked out the door
has taken all his blankets from the floor.
The carpet too is moving under you
And it's all over now, baby blue.”

Why Current Thinking About Autism Is Completely Wrong

Why Current Thinking About Autism Is Completely Wrong

Commented Sep 6, 2009 at 17:59:22 in Healthy Living

“Hmmmm.... so I have some questions:
1. How many anecdotes like this are there?
2. Why is the Dr selling videos and books and vitamins and not funding independent double-blind scientific research that can be peer reviewed in, say, the top 3 or 4 journals?
3. Why is Huff Post presenting anecdotal stories with such vigor? and linking to all the good doctors marketing websites?
4. Where is the journalism? Someone other than the product seller and the editor of their own 'medical journal' should be questioned here

While the Dr's approach may be valid or warrant research, I just cant condone this kind of media exposure for an untested hypothesis. Reporting a hypothesis is one thing, allowing an advocate of same with so much conflict of interest to do so is something completely different - I think you can imagine how it smells to me.

NOTE: There is one large-scale randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study re: gluten and autism currently awaiting report from the NIMH: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00090428 .... In order to better understand why this study is important, and how this kind of research works in general you should pick up a copy of "Blind Faith" by Richard P Sloan [ http://asp.cumc.columbia.edu/facdb/profile_list.asp?uni=rps7&DepAffil=Psychiatry ] he does a very good of of explaining how and why solid research works (albeit to a different focus in his book)”

“You make some excellent points but concerned parents don't always have the time for the medical community to come to a consensus.

I am very grateful that none of my children were autistic but one did have symptoms when she was young such as stomach aches, constant whining, and poor attention span. Visits to her doctor for years did nothing. When my daughter was six, I finally went the route of "alternative medicine" and I did so based purely on anecdotal evidence. I did an elimination diet and determined through repeated experimentation that whenever she had corn syrup she was, within a few minutes, writhing in pain. I cut out all corn syrup in her diet and all of the symptoms that she had suffered since infancy disappeared. She went from being a below average student in kindergarten to being an above average student in the first grade. She is now a senior in college.

Had I waited for peer reviewed studies to inform my daughter's pediatrician about how to diagnose and treat my daughter, she may have had a very different life.”

“My Pleasure - It is a must read , as is Hofstadters "Anti-Intellectualism in American Life". There are also a couple of good interviews with her online [BUT READ THE BOOK!] - one at fora.tv and another presentation she gave in a bookstore. Jacoby's main addendum to Hofstadter has to do with how media is playing a part in 'dumbing down' society... it's a well thought through presentation.”

“Actual "News" is hardly reported any more. Between the editorialization and punditry it is basically all entertainment. Sadly, this drivel has been passed off as news and gulped up by a population too stupid to see whats happening. News is NOT Rick Sanchez checking twiiter or facebook for feedback, it's NOT Wolf Blitzer talking over YoYoMa at the inauguration, it's not ANY kind of pundit comment, and it's definitely NOT the strained inflections, oohs and ahhs of anchors....

This has all evolved as a result of an audience that can no longer think for itself. When a culture looses reason and errs toward anti-intellectualism the result, as we see, is catastrophic. Jacoby's update to Hofstadter's '63 analysis is a must read - as is her inspiration, his book holds up well in todays bright light.”
