More people get it wrong than right. I have more people coming to my blog doing the search “Musings of a Distractable Mind” than by the correctly-spelled version. I made this same mistake when I started. English is dumb. Shouldn’t it be “able” because it means “able to be distracted?” Nobody is “ible to be distracted.”
Sorry. Got off track. My podcast on ADD came out today. In it I discuss the condition and give a personal narrative of my life with ADD. I expect to be called by movie producers any day now. Listen and let me know what you think.
Take the poll as well!

FCC: All Programming To Be Broadcast In ADHDTV By 2007
WASHINGTON, DC—The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-1 Monday to require electronics manufacturers to make all television sets ADHD-compatible within two years.
To adhere to the guidelines, every program, with the exception of The Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi Show, will have to be sped up to meet the new standard frame rate of 120 frames per second.
FCC Chairman Kevin Martin characterized the move as “a natural, forward-thinking response to the changing needs of the average American viewer.”
“In the media-saturated climate of the modern age, few have the time and energy to sit still for an entire episode of King Of Queens,” Martin said. “Although the FCC will leave it up to the television networks to make the necessary programming changes, we are recommending, in accordance with the ADHDTV standard, that all shows be no more than six minutes in length, and that they contain jarring and unpredictable camera cuts to shiny props and detailed background sets.”
