Temple Grandin's WSJ interview on Asperger's

I don't really know if Asperger's syndrome really exists; the Internet tells me that I have it, and I suppose I empathized somewhat with the sketch of the disease in Tyler Cowen's excellent Create Your Own Economy. Still, the criteria for diagnosis seem loose enough that about a third of the people with whom I went to college probably also fit it, and I am wary of the over-medicalization of American life generally.

Still, this WSJ interview with Temple Grandin about her Asperger's is fascinating.
