Alex Baker, an 11-year-old boy with autism, has a photographic memory that allows him to reproduce a skyline or aerial cityscape after visiting a city, or seeing it in a book, just once. His perspective sketches include London, Paris, New York, and many other cities.
“I took Alex to London when he was five and we were only there for the day, but he came home and drew all the London Underground system in detail,” said his mother, Laura Jackson.

Typos are as they appear on the package.
Should I burn them?
Update: Here’s the response from AUSN:
I apologize for the packaging. In response to our COVID-19 survey which showed that the majority of our members were in need of PPE gear. We had hired a veteran owned company in Illinois to do the production and distribution of the masks. It was not until we received the tracking numbers once they were mailed to our membership that we realized they were not coming from the USA. They do in fact have the ability to insert a N95 filter which would increase the level of protection if desired further protection against the virus.
Must read. These never-ending kangaroo court house proceedings are dangerous to our country, no matter what political party you align with. If every future election can be negated by one political party via majority fiat, we’re done for.

Democrat Senator Dick Durbin blames Republicans for Chicago’s horrific gun violence, but there’s just one little problem. Chicago’s last Republican Mayor was William Hale Thompson (who served from 1927-1931). James Woods begins his reply with “Dear Nimrod.”
