Today is World Autism Awareness Day. Speaking as a parent of a son with high-functioning autism, this video by GoogleLabs made me cry. So many people with autism have great creativity and amazing visual thinking. The aquarium walls in one girl's "dream house"? Marvelous.

NOTE: Don't forget that tomorrow here at C&L we have a live chat with the amazing Illinois progressive House candidate Dr. David Gill. Read more about him here and join us at 2 Eastern, 11 Pacific tomorrow for a live chat.
