:mad: While surfing face book it was buzzing with shock and rage at the nationally aired radio show of Walton and Johnson. I listened for myself and couldn't believe what I heard. They were joking and laughing at Stephen Hawking saying he was a corpse being wheeled around and merely a blob of meat that really wasn't real. I went their face book page to find so many caregivers and PALS sharing their disbelief and outrage at the ignorance shown by Walton and Johnson towards this disease.

It's sad they have the ability to use the air waves for jokes regarding this disease instead of educating so we can cure this monster.

The storm is brewing! How they depicted him like the wizard of oz and someone behind a curtain was doing the work, while he was only a blob of meat...a corpse being wheeled around. Then laughing and mocking his voice through the devices we have to use. They are sick and heartless!

I pulled up their facebook page but couldn't see where I could post a comment expressing my displeasure for their actions. I guess I need some help!

Once I logged on to facebook, I got on their fb page and before I could post a comment regarding their remarks on Stephen Hawking and ALS, I had to hit the "like" icon at the top of their page. This enabled me to post a comment on their fb page, if anyone else should have the same difficulty.

Do u have a link to their Facebook page and their radio station? I'd love to call and complain...and also let the sponsors of their show know. Some things simply are not meant to be used for "humor" the whole idea makes me sick! Did they YouTube it, too?

I'd like to hear the broadcast.... I looked at their facebook page. Seems full of negative comments for their discussion of ALS. I don't want to 'like' their page to add my 2 cents in.. Big jerks.

How awful. I sent an email to them. I don't know who they are but they look like jerks who don't have any good inspiring messages on their show. I don't have a lot of hope they will do anything good with the messages we send.
