Having more ups and downs than a narcoleptic elevator repair man during kangaroo mating season.
Heh! Good cartoon, Sully. I think I've whacked on something like that myself.I have four sons. The older ones are all highly intelligent, productive, grown men now. But, our last son is 13 (will be 14 in June). He is autistic, so I can somewhat relate to what this mother is saying.But, according to the news video, the boy has an IQ of 75. I don't know how autism is identified from place to place, but around here we'd call him "retarded." Autism is such a broad term that I guess it gets thrown around for kids with all types of mental/emotional difficulties.My #4 son is highly intelligent (IQ in the 130 range), but still can't tie his shoes, or ride a bicycle, or learn to speak to others in social situations, or yada yada yada...so, he is "retarded" emotionally, socially, and physically in many ways. I can understand why the school would be troubled that this boy drew the picture that he did. I mean, we've all had thoughts of wanting to kill a particular teacher, huh? But, I'm thinking the school knows something about this kid that gave them real concern.Oh well, I'm just rambling now...I'll quit.But, I like that pic you drew...Jeepers, I've hit that nail too many times myself!
I like it when you ramble... I've just gotten a bit tired of the constant over reactions by bad art critics. I think the kid has talent.
