Kim Stagliano on CNN
I got a call last Wednesday to appear on CNN's lunchtime newscast about the retraction of a series paper by the UK medical journal The Lancet. What I really wanted to say to Elizabeth Cohen is that clearly she is NOT the mother of a child with autism or she would never even own, let alone wear, an entire oyster bed full of pearl strands for fear of being choked to death or skating on loose pearls and breaking her neck. I think I held my own. As usual, I, "the broken hearted passionate mommy" was followed by the "kindly elderly doctor in the white coat with the soothing voice and lollipop in his pocket."
