I saw this picture of Bill Gates the other day:
The photo confused me. He's younger than I am, a lot younger, but he looks ten years older. His skin looks like he's spent every waking moment out in the sun, without sunblock, and we know that's highly unlikely. There's something wrong.
So I asked Google.
Nothing definitive or verifiable, nothing from reliable sites, just unverified rumors of Parkinson's Disease. Whatever. But I'm sure there's something going on with him. Can it be just stress?
Wandering around what turned up for "Parkinson" with various other search arguments, I am surprised at how many people in public life have Parkinson's.
Ten years ago it was brain tumors.
Almost like ... a fashion, or something. Strange.
