GP implies stopping the drugs was the direct cause for the relapse.
The CNN article states the child was initially "functionally cured" a few months after stopping the drugs.
The facts us readers know, indicate neither correlation nor causation between stopping drugs and the relapse.

A normal person is a person who's good at some things and bad at others.
99.99% of programmers, including myself, are normal people who are good at the things required to be a programmer and bad at others (like social things, perhaps?).

TFA is some self-righteous bullshit. Imagine if a garbage collector wrote a blog about "the insufferable unequality in his profession because it takes somebody with rare talents such as muscle-power and the ability to withstand excruciating smells, excluding all the normal people". We'd call that guy an arrogant prick. What is the difference?

Get of your high horse, mr. Edwards. Unless you are one of these Jonathan Edwards's, you're just a normal person like pretty much the entire rest of humanity.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
