They teach us that some people will go to extraordinary lengths to justify that famous people in history had certain ailments of the day to justify throwing money at specific charities until they get tired and try some other traumatic ailments.

Don't get me wrong.  Autism awareness has come leaps and bounds over the past few years, but I don't want you going back and revising history with your fancy new analytical pieces that says "famous so-and-so was OBVIOUSLY on the spectrum" and whatnot.  Let us be bound by the future and not the hypothetical past.

The author of that article is a dean at a college??

No thesis. No supporting facts for her assertions. References to literary works without any specific citations. No conclusion.

Mark Twain? The famous wit who spoke in public for a living, was very gregarious and every bit not autistic? Emily Dickinson? Sure, she was nuts.

If Twain was autistic the diagnosis is meaningless.
