A quick out and cheap blogger trick, but still

I gave a talk this week about the 5-year toboggan ride that Jeanne and I took, from her initial diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment in 2010, through her decline from Alzheimer's to her death in January, 2016. It's a love story I will return to.

As luck always has it, the latest New Yorker features an article about dementia by Larissa MacFarquhar. In it, MacFarquhar explores a basic question - what does it mean to lie to someone with dementia?

I need to think about that one. In the meantime, you can watch a 5-minute video interview with the author here (pictured above, starts with a commercial), and find the article at the New Yorker website here.
