Our conundrum-in-chief got a lot of press today when he briefly met with Jason McElwain, a young, autistic basketball player who recently achieved some notoriety when, after his coach put him into a high school basketball game for the final four minutes, he scored twenty points and contributed greatly to a thirty-six point victory over his team's opponents.

I just don't see what all the fuss is about. It's a nice story, it really is, but it just isn't that uncommon. Successful athletes frequently spend time with intellectually challenged fans.
