yes they are really cruel. sometimes people from the radio stations thinks they know it all. just because they have this freedom to speak their minds.... sometimes they dont think anymore.

I have watched Back to the Future a few times. It is a nice movie, although it sounds old now. My son is still too little to understand it yet.

I watched him on Family Ties years ago and, of course saw Back to the Future and just about anything he has done. I watched when he was on West Wing and I am so sorry this disease has affected him the way it has. But what a great spokesperson for Parkinson's! My friend's father has it and it's so heartbreaking. I recently saw Michael J. Fox on a TV show and he seemed fine. He seems to have it under control - at least for the cameras - and he is an inspiration to me. I always think life is over if you find out you have a disease or affliction but he (among others) is proof that life isn't over. You fight and you overcome what you can and you accept what you can't. I love the guy!

yes isaw him also on a show a few nights ago, although he is trying to control it he is making it look like normal. any disease is not really eay but seiing someone who is trying to make a normal life is really very inspirational. thanks for the response

yeah! he's one of two short actors that I found to be cute when i was young. no prizes for guessing that tom cruise is the other. he has classically had wives that were taller than him. it was a shame that nicole kidman and him broke up though, i thought she was the epitome of class. katie just seems like a kid. Tom is less inspirational i must say.

I loved back to the future, and so do my kids. I am so happy he really isn't letting the parkinson's desease keep him down. I mean it is taking it's toll on him, but it does not control his life. He does not ask for pitty. Thanks for the discussion.

I saw the original when it first came out in the movies but I didn't see the two sequels until recently when they were on HBO and I watched all 3. I'd forgotten how good the first one was, in fact I think I appreciate it more now and the other two were really much better than many sequels are. Michael J. Fox truly is an inspiration. It was so sad when he left Spin City after his symptoms got too bad for him to do it anymore. Annie
