    You are making the very elementary mistake of confusing explanation with excuse.

    Even if the medical explanations for Rmoney's oddities are totally and transparently false, that's a bog-stupid thing to do. Also a very conservative one. It's conservatives, for instance, who greet every attempt to explain crime rates by discussing social conditions with the feral belch of "You're making excuses for criminals!"

      and if you had ever dealt with someone with alzheimers you would know that. You would also know that it is an excuse for him because no one with alzheimers can't help forgetting things and would do anything they could to remember things the way they used too.
