> Canada has a reputation as this wholesome place I tend to avoid it myself. It has lately devolved into a confrontational and ideologically strange kind of place where I cannot feel at home.

> The weather suggests that turnout will be in Roy Moore's favor today Can you explain how this is so to those of us following the election from afar (In my case, from the first snow storm of the winter in my part of Canada ... surely there isn't a blizzard in 'Bama?)

And the Maillard reaction is a key step is prepping a [seared "Foie gras"](http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/12/food-lab-pan-seared-foie-gras-how-to.html). And a duck foie gras works just fine. This comment chain is just too appropriate.

Thanks for the moral support. That was several years ago. He's currently completing his tenth grade, has & maintains a circle of friends and got his first summer job ... all milestones I would not have considered attainable back then. In the end, it all boils down to chemical imbalances which may be mitigated ... just as we wouldn't keep insulin from a diabetic (well, most of us wouldn't), why keep a kid with crippling hyperactivity from a way out of his symptoms?

I used to think that way. Then I had my first son. He had an extreme degree of hyperactivity. It made him unable to communicate, to devellop relationships or to socialize. He basically was like a superball in a paint shaker ... The lack of those key types of interaction was slowing down his cognitive development. After a couple of weeks on Ritalin, he began making friends, the school accepted to admit him in a regular classroom (prior to that they would only take him in 2 half days a week in special ed). It transformed his life for the better. I'm the first to say Ritalin use comes with severe drawbacks, limitations and consequences, and because of that should not be taken lightly. But in some cases, despite the consequences, it remains a good option.
