April is Autism Awareness Month, and on April 2nd, We Lit It Up Blue for World Autism Awareness Day.  Folks in buildings around the world (the Empire State Building, for one) lit up their homes or offices with blue light bulbs, to raise awareness for autism, which now affects 1 in 50 children.

Local Amazon programmer, Harley rider, and father, Paul White, visited me in the Jack Studios, to give us an inside look at life with his son Patrick, who has been diagnosed as  on the spectrum of autism.
