    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.

    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.
