You are doing a great job!

I don't know if you saw last week's eposide of HOUSE, but the really was emotional. It was about a boy with autism who couldn't articulate what was wrong with him, but House finally figures it out (as usual). In the end, he gives Dr. House a hug.

Mine says "Honk if you understand Punctuated Equilibria." I got it from a bookseller at a meeting. Nobody ever honks but I suspect it is because they are too introverted.

Hello Miss Dennis,

I really like your blog. I find it so interesting that sometimes I almost forget it is written in English. You must know that your blog is a great help in letting me know what the good and the bad things are for someone living in NY.

Please, take a look at my webpage too:

You might also be able to help me with the gifted students I am looking for.

All the best


P.s: I also sent you a relevant mail yesterday.

Anybody who works with autistic children should have a special place in heaven reserved for them. I hope when you get there(of course after you reached 100+) that place has your name on it.

Regulations and other circumstances permitting, expect to see one of those bumper stickers on a patrol car belonging to a police department in the State of Michigan in a few years.

Glad to see you're still out there.
I am awaiting the story you started to tell about the court case (when you can of course).

Are you back with the DoE?

I love your Autism bumper stickers. This is a cause near and dear to my heart. My husband is part of Buffalo Musicians Against Autism. Local bands contribute songs for a benefit Christmas CD to raise money for local Autism services. Check out their website and listen to some of the songs - classics and originals. =)

I hope your lack of posting is that you're busy, not drowning. (I taught science at IS 174 in the Bronx for three years, so I know how it can be.) Post again soon, please :)
