"Speaking is difficult for me. But my feelings are clear: I'm furious."

This from Gabby Giffords in today's NYTimes. It's been hard to watch the rehabbing of Giffords and this op-ed shows that while she still doesn't speak well, her mind is in top gear. 

Me?  I'm a talker.  I can't imagine the frustration Ms. Giffords must feel when she has so much to say and such difficulty saying it.  The good news -- if there is any good news in a situation like that -- is that social media has given her a massive platform to communicate without speaking.  I wonder how well she types. 

That's a serious question.  Obviously there are different parts of the brain for different things.  I hope she can type 100 wpm.
