Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

Before You Put Anything Else On Your Plate...

Mom would tell you to finish your peas.

We see the buildup to a concerted effort to try a redux of the fundraising part of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

I hope that every organization that tries to do this will first give us a clear accounting of what it did with its windfall funds from last year -- simply an orderly list of the checks that have cleared and what they were spent on, and what, if anything, is left in the bank.  We don't need a foggy infographic with fine print (but perhaps there will be a line item of dollars spent on those).

Do you still have peas on the plate in front of you right now?

Sometimes the fight against ALS just needs a dose of motherly common sense.
