To you, my western friends, with your new California babies,
“Another recent study, from the University of California, Davis, published in Autism Research, also found high rates of autism in children born around Los Angeles, as well as nine other California locations. Autism, usually diagnosed before a child is 3 years old, is a developmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction and communication and repetitive behavior.“
Wait just one second, I thought, doesn’t “impaired social interaction and communication and repetitive behavior,” in fact, characterize a kind of ideal Southern Californian state of grace?
