 Me, three.  I especially appreciated the stark honesty from those of
 you who are caretakers. Eye opening and heart wrenching. Consider
 yourselves beamed upon.

Thank you for all the touching stories.  (Tears are the hardest stains
to get off of glasses.)

I'll bet it will get an added surge of interest, coming as it is on
the heels of Mr. Reagan's death.

There's a story in a public-broadcasting trade publication, CURRENT, about
the success of a film based on"The Forgetting":



Proud memory: The Forgetting

By Steve Behrens

> Strange how a harrowing program about a nightmare disease can become a
> major feel-good event for public TV.

> Though some viewers said they didn't like seeing the difficult realities of
> The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's and its stories of three families
> and medical researchers struggling with Alzheimer's disease, many more,
> paradoxically, thanked public TV for showing it to them in January.

> Along with the bad news, the program brought viewers some relief--
> information about a disease they didn't understand and hope about the help
> they didn't know they could get.

> "The more information that's out there, the more people can say, 'Grandma
> was really mean today, but that's the Alzheimer's talking,'" says Chris
> Siefert, outreach director at Montana PBS in Bozeman.
