"Joshua Littman was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, when he was 5. When he was 9, he joined MENSA. Recently, Joshua, 12, wrote a list of questions to ask his mother."
That one touched me. I thought I'd share and see what the rest of you thought.
EDIT: As I told my girlfriend, last night, I misinterpreted his mom saying Joshua was more or less spoilers:
|born without social genes|
|interpersonal and social nuances|
Pretty compelling for a 5 minute recording. Apparently, though, the full list of questions is available somewhere on NPR.org (Click here for the full article.). I wonder how much was cut due to time restrictions versus propriety concerns.
* - The idea is that these stories are so interesting that you'll find yourself still sitting in your car, parked in the driveway, so you can hear the end of the segment. If this one's any indication, they picked a great name for these.
