In the news: Teri Garr on NPR

Today on NPR, Terry Gross spoke with Teri Garr about her career (including dancing in 9 Elvis movies) and about MS. I've read some critical comments about how Garr handles her MS in public. I haven't seen her TV appearances, so I'm not sure what the issue is, but I really enjoyed this interview. If Garr has become the Designated MS Celebrity Ambassador, it's a role she plays with grace and humor, and a little ambivalence.

She's got a book out, of course, called "Speedbumps." Garr says she was going to call the book "Does This Wheelchair Make Me Look Fat?" I'm guessing she's already used that joke in her TV appearances.
