Many of you in the food allergy community are well aware of Joel Stein. He wrote a pretty inflammatory piece about peanut allergies in the LA Times last year.
I think I speak for most FA parents when I say I wanted to punch him in the face upon reading said article.
Well, in a brilliant karmic event, Joel's son was diagnosed with food allergies recently.
Ok, maybe I'm being harsh when I say brilliant - I really wouldn't wish membership to this club on anyone. But in some strange way, he's on the receiving end of it now.
So in this week's Time magazine (it's on newstands now - I just read it in the grocery store - or you can subscribe online), he writes what he calls his "Mea Culpa" about the whole thing.
And you know what?
I thought it was lame.
I know he's trying to be funny, but it still rang hollow to me. I think he had a great opportunity to say something a bit more responsible and just completely sidestepped it.
What about you guys?
