    In his case it is likely the result of two brain aneurysms. Unfortunate, and POSSIBLY less debilitating than senility but still cause for concern. The big question is whether he recognizes the gaffs...

    That's how the magic of statistics work. Tell half the story in a manner that leads to false conclusions.
