Ailing 'Dilbert' cartoonist talks again
DUBLIN, Calif. - A balding, bespectacled working stiff inexplicably loses his voice — except when speaking in rhyme or pinching his nose. It may sound like a farcical plot for a popular cartoon satirizing American office culture, but "Dilbert" cartoonist Scott Adams says he recovered less than a week ago from just such an affliction.
Adams, 49, appears to be a rare example of someone who has largely — but not totally — recovered from Spasmodic Dysphonia, a mysterious disease in which parts of the brain controlling speech shut down or go haywire.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

Wow. What a weird disorder! I hope his recovery is complete and lasts forever.

I have all of Scott Adams' books. He is an excellent writer and tremendously funny. My prayers for a permanent recovery.I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!
