    Very cool. Congratulations! How does this feeling of pride for Shonda compare to your personal joy with the WS rings?

    Dear Curt,
    I have two very important comments to make,one regarding the incredible book and one regarding a very hurtful comment that you made. In terms of the hurtful comment,when you say that you are not usually a NY fan,I know that you are making reference to the New York Yankees,and for the record,I despise them. What makes it so upsetting to me is that in making the comment,you are equating ALL New Yorkers and all of New York City with the Yankees. For your information,there are many people here in New York who despise the Yankees,like me,either because they love the Mets or are not interested in baseball but dislike the Yankees,who are arrogant and obnoxious,nonetheless(as are their fans). For the record,I am faithful to the New York Mets and the Boston Red Sox. New York City is a fabulous city,as is Boston,and we have many wonderful people who are not interested in the New York Yankees,so PLEASE do not lump all of us or our city together with one baseball team,which is just a minor fraction of our city. You should have said that you are not a fan of the baseball team,and not made it sound as if you are not a fan of the whole city. As a life long New Yorker,and a life long hater of the New York Yankees,I am very proud of this city,as well as it’s people,and we come together on most things(we banded together on 9/11/2001)but we do not band together when it comes to the New York Yankees,a team that I am NOT proud of. So please do not say that you are not a NY fan-you should say that you are not a NY Yankees fan because if you ever took a look at the city itself and the people of the city,aside from coming to do the TV show a few weeks ago,you would realize that there is a lot more to this city and it’s people than just the one baseball team. I have always supported you and your family,and always will,but I have to say this one time,you really hurt me with your comment,saying that you will make an exception to your dilike of NY because this time it is good for you and suits your agenda..As for the book,everyone in this city knows that the New York Times seeks out excellence in books and that it is always a great honor to be on the New York Times bestseller list. For those of you who do not know,while the book is listed as number 15 for the first week,in coming weeks,as more people know about the book(and some people will become aware of it because it is on the bestseller list)I have no doubt that the book will continue to move up on the list,which will be an additional honor. I congratulate you and your wife not only for making the list but also for the incredible book,for speaking out to not only make people aware but also help others,as you did on the TV show a few weeks ago. Here in New York we have always recognized excellence not only in theatre and the arts but also books,and this book is truly an excellent book,one to be very proud of,as I am. You have always been a supporter of others dealing with things in life(and I am amazed that you did so much to help people with ALS while dealing with your own family issue)and now please know that you will always have my love and support,as you will of many others. So congratulations once again for making the list,I look forward to seeing it move up and stay on the list for a very long time,I thank you for all that you do,and please do me a favor by taking a look at New York City,other than the baseball team. If you can just see beyond the one baseball team,then I will overlook your comment directed at New York City. You are welcome to come anytime,and next time you are here,it would be my pleasure to show you the finest things that the city has to offer,from sights to art to eating,from the ground up(great view from a 43rd floor apartment)and introduce you to the great people of New York City. Please do remember that the finest things the city has to offer,and we have many fine things,does not include the New York Yankees!

    That’s fantastic! I’ll have to get it as a gift for my sister; my nephew’s diagnosis on the Spectrum was Highly Functioning Austistic with Asperger Like Traits. He’s a beautiful and smart boy (9 years old) and there’s nothing better than hearing stories from other people (even those you may not know personally) to help identify with you, and share experiences on parenting.

    Dear Curt,
    I really don’t think this is the right place to leave this message but I’m not quite sure how to leave you this message otherwise. My sister who is 48 and has two children ages 16 and 13 was recently diagnosed with ALS. She had her first symptoms in early December 09 and was diagnosed in mid February. She has just about no use of her arms and legs and is in a wheel chair already. It has already affected her swallowing and speech. We are holding a benefit for her in July and we will be holing a special raffle that night. We would like to donate half of the proceeds of this particular raffle to the Curt and Shondra Schilling ALS fund. We would like to ask if you could help us by donating an autographed item from you to help promote this raffle. At this time we have a pair of tickets in the 400 club section of the park. We are also trying to a a limo ride to and from the game. Please let me know if there is anything you can do. Thank you in advance.

    That VFW cross-in-the-desert case you wrote about some time back has just been decided, in favor of the veterans.
