    character ( Diane Kruger ) has Asperger's Syndrome and it would be interesting to get your perspectives on that portrayal

    But for the moment, I'm moving on to a new stage in my life, while I'll be able to accomplish more, and thus help more people. I have Asperger's Syndrome, so I feel I can show younger folks with the same diagnosis that this disability can be overcome. Yet I know there will always be Aspies incapable of holding a full-time job, and in turn will be ridiculed by Tea Party types. Called lazy moochers living off Social Security Disability, or even faking it altogether, as Michael Savage once claimed. Is it wrong to feel any pride in overcoming Asperger's Syndrome when many, many other Aspies haven't?
