What is Tom saying to Maureen?

Ian Hacking's review article from the London Review of Books gives a good summary of what we know and don't know about autism. I was particularly interested in the fact that he puts autism in historical context and asks why we see so much more autism now than people once did. Hacking who did such a fine job of putting multiple personality disorder in historical context in his Rewriting the Soul, brings the same sharp eye and tongue to this short piece.
