Cheers to Jill for bringing out this fact! I am dyslexic, but am certainly
not inferior in intelligence, nor in my ability to communicate. I just have
to triple-check things. In fact, people with similar dyslexia probably
over-compensate, and become super editors. I am not a super editor, but it
is such a large part of my lifestyle, that no doubt by the time I am 40 I
will have an extremely well-developed skill. Dare I say it? OK --I feel as
though dyslexia can be a benefit.

You are correct. In fact, Einstein (whose name has become synonymous with
superior intelligence) was himself dyslexic.
