    Why is it

    that the PWC on this sight can come up with all these great advocacy ideas like lobbying GWS groups and different Autism groups but the CAA seems to do nothing but post news about XMRV on facebook that everyone is already aware of. Are they planning on doing anything XMRV related or are they going to let WPI do all the heavy lifting. I have been emailing Autism speaks and will start mailing GWS groups. Why is our self proclaimed advocacy group not taking these actions.
    They could send out an advocacy alert form letter like they have in the past for any of these type of ideas or anything related to XMRV. But of course they do not. They will just stand on the sidelines passing along news from WPI and other groups but doing nothing more.

    Parvo, in addition to this "interestingly" there seems to be a very high autism rate amongst children of military personnel (no, of course no-one bothered to do any actual studies so far, but anecdotal reports are plenty and point to very high incidence...). Angela Warner is an autism military mum who has written on the subject ... http://www.ageofautism.coam/military/

    The military conection is of interest to me.

    I was a military kid, my children are military kids and my youngest daughter is autistic.
