I'm a long-time fan, going back to watching you on NoVa public access when I lived in a shitty Crystal City apartment. I vividly remember the episode where you inexplicably had manged to get Eleanor Clift as a guest, as well as the one where you had porn going on your greenscreen background. Good times.
So here's a question: Is there a grand media lesson to be learned from the trouble liberals have had keeping major electronic broadcast media afloat in a big way, versus how good the right has been at it? I still don't understand Air America and Current, but I bet you do.
Thanks for all you do.

A long walk, but upvoted for the effort.

CF dad here. My thoughts are with you and -- if you're anything like my son -- hope your eyeballs fall out of their sockets from all the video games you get to play when you're admitted.
My son is eight years old. He had a very rough start as an infant with months and months in the NICU, then several years of doing well, and now he's going in for IV's about once a year. It's something he lives with, but as others in the thread have said -- so much of what we do is fighting for normalcy.
My questions for you (and anyone else with CF in this thread who want to chime in) are:
-- What is something that you felt your parents did right in helping you deal with your CF?
-- What is something they did wrong?
-- Was there ever a big conversation about, "This is how serious the disease it, it has x life expectancy, etc."? Or was it always a given?
Thanks and feel better soon.
