Date Night

Sonja and I are going tonight to see the Movie about Temple Grandin, staring Claire Danes, and tomorrow to see Temple in Person.  Both events are at 7 PM in the K-State Union.

Temple Grandin is the author of Animals in Translation. She has autism, and says she thinks in pictures and details like animals, not in abstractions and concepts like other people.  She says she understands animal emotions.

Animals do not get conflicted.   They experience one emotion at a time.

I also remember a scene in her book where she describes meeting B.F. Skinner, who turned out to be a creepy old man.
