My wife's cousin, Isabelle, had a stroke last night. She is doing much better right now, but will need therapy to recover full speech capabilities. While in the emergency room, the physician asked her a number of questions to determine her extent of mental acuteness and possible brain damage. She is in her mid-eighties and even after being in America for over fifty years, she still speaks English with a heavy accent.
One of the questions posed to her by the doctor was, "Can you name the President of the United States?" Isabelle struggled with the words and stammered, "The black guy.... the idiot."
She obviously has full control of her mental facilities.
