Hi Al, I have seen that documentery you talked about.. Actually, Henry and I watched it together. It was really emotional. However, it was the truth. Thats what I like. No grey. Just black and white when it comes to als. Too many people in the medicine field and otherwise healthcare aids sugarcoat als. Or, maybe, are just not knowledgable enough about the whole issue. I am not sure where you draw the lines here. We all need hope, after all that is the only thing that keeps us going. However, all said and done, at least there was a show on als on national tv. Whether it was a good portrayal or not is in the eyes of the beholder. A lot of people still have not even heard of als, so that is a good thing within itself. I like James Wood as an actor. He is awesome, he is just not a good als actor.
