Defending Those With Autism

Dear Editor,

Autism is not a new condition, so why do radio hosts claim those with it are a fraud? Referring to the Michael Savage Show/WOR Radio N.Y. on Autism last week. One wonders why the only voice in protest was Councilman David Weprin. Mr. Savage states, "Autism is a scam, a fraud to obtain benefits." It is a low shot even for this vile broadcaster.

I thank the many sponsors who, at once, pulled their ads in protest. This show should be boycotted and off the air. If only to protest for many Autistic children, who have no public voice and may not get the help needed to combat this unknown problem with no cure in sight.
