When I went to fact-check today’s comic, I learned that, in fact, it’s not true that Einstein didn’t speak until 3 or 4. I learned this from a web site that talks about what to say when your child is in speech therapy and people say “but Einstein didn’t speak until he was 3″, so apparently this is a very common issue for people whose children have special needs.
Two of my closest friends have kids with special needs—great little kids I’ve known since they were born. It feels pretty normal to me to be around that, so I’m bringing a little of it into the strip.

The Small Press Expo is this weekend! If you are in the vicinity of Bethesda, you should ABSOLUTELY come on down.
Hope to see you there!
