...and the oldest son was curious what the folks here at AM thought about it, so I told him I would ask...

I think it's a great ad for Dr. Meyers (of course I know nothing about him at all)

I have loved Jeanne White for a lot of years now.   She's a fine person.

I hope Dr. Meyers wins.  I love Jeane White.

I got to meet Jeanne White a few months ago, and she is an amazing woman.  Ryan passed away years ago, but her dedication to HIV/AIDS issues hasn't seemed to diminish in the slightest.

Jeanne White is to be commended for what she did in the support of her late son Michael.

She opened doors that bigots had held closed for years

Remember Michael
