I don't mind saying that amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, scares me. A degenerative disease that takes away the minds ability to control the body, leaving the mind intact... words fail me. Add to that the fact that there is no known cure, and that there are at least 30,000 people suffering from this, just in the US, something has to be done. You can give money over at the ALS Association. Please do. Oh, and Aaron Bertrand of SQL Sentry asked me to come over to his house to take part in the ice bucket challenge. Here are the results. Please donate for this important cause. If you see Kevin Kline, Steve Jones or Thomas LaRock, help them mix their ice bucket.
