A very 'Grandin' night at the Emmys.
HBO's 'Temple Grandin' won
five Emmys last night, including
best made for TV movie.

HBO's critically acclaimed "Temple Grandin" told the remarkable real-life story of the bestselling author and groundbreaking agricultural scientist who struggled early in life to learn to cope with autism before the disease was widely known.

On Sunday, the biopic, which had to overcome what was widely perceived in the industry as challenging subject matter to make its way to the screen, claimed five Emmy prizes, including outstanding made for TV movie.

3. I once co-presented with Temple at a conference in Waterbury, Conn. in 1995.
Therefore, I am now famous. Sort of. :-)

5. Well, didn't you say that you were one of Leo Kanner's patients?
That itself makes you famous.

I have always wondered what became of Hans Asperger's patient "Franz", it is said that he became a respected scientist.

cripes, I'm not that old! It must have been toward the end of his career, in the late '60s.

I am, however, considering titling my autobiography "Free The Baltimore Eleven"!

6. She did a really informative TEDtalks talk
It was uplifting for me as an Asperger's sufferer.
