In case you haven't figured it out by now, I'm back on cottage time. The August long weekend approaches, and I'm sorry, but, the call of the lake is greater than the call of the blog.
If you are looking for something serious to watch this weekend, PBS is rerunning The Forgetting: A Portrait of Alzheimer's (Sunday at 9 p.m. on most PBS affiliates; check local listings, however, because PBS affiliates are notorious renegades). Frasier star David Hyde Pierce, whose father and grandfather succumbed to the disease and who narrated this 2004 special, returns afterwards for a new half-hour town hall-style meeting called The Future of Alzheimer's; various doctors and other experts are on the panel. You can read more about Pierce's personal connection to this fight here in the piece I filed for CP today.
