Hramblings: Dr. Temple Grandin born today, 1947

I've followed Temple Grandin's career since reading about her in Oliver Sack's book, "An Anthropologist on Mars." Dr. Grandin is an expert in animal behavior and a well-known designer of humane animal handling systems. She provides a unique and well articulated view on how people with autism should be treated and moreover, that their perspective should be equally valued. Her most recent book is "Animals in Translation".
