But It's the Little Things That Count

This hug was all over the t.v. a few days ago and it made me want to barf every time I saw it. Now I understand why.

From Zay N. Smith
Chicago Sun-Times Quick Takes

News Item: "President Bush yesterday gave a huge hug to Jason McElwain -- the autistic high school basketball manager in upstate New York who became a national hero when he scored 20 points in four minutes for his team . . ."

Think Progress, www.thinkpro, wants you to know:

President Bush didn't have time during the photo op to mention that his budget proposes the elimination of the National Children's Study project, which helps children with autism.

Or cuts in Medicaid reimbursements for children with disabilities.

Or cuts in funding for the Individuals with Disabilities Act.

But the photos came out well
