Rally against Rush

Outraged by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh's criticism of actor Michael J. Fox's appearance in a campaign ad, advocates for patients with Parkinson's disease are ralling from 1 to 3 p.m. tomorrow at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

Fox, who has Parkinson's, shakes uncontrollably in a commercial for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Fox touts McCaskill's support for federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, which scientists say may lead to a cure for Parkinson's.

Limbaugh said of Fox's powerful appearance in the commercial: "It's purely an act.''

The Fox commercial has been watched more than 1.5 million times on the on-line video web site, www.youtube.com. For more information about tomorrow's rally, go to www.cureparkinsons.org
