We Are All Charlie Gordon

Quantifying My Cognitive Decline

James Wallace Harris has been using Grammarly to monitor changes in his grammar and spelling.

The reason why Flowers for Algernon was such a magnificent story is that we’re all Charlie Gordon. We all start out dumb, get smart, and then get dumb again. Charlie just did it very fast, and that felt tragic. We do it slowly and try to ignore it’s happening. That’s also tragic.
