Pic of the Day: “The captain says it’s like spelling to a fence post.” “Does he now? It’s how I watch you talk to your baby.” “The baby?” “Any baby. It’s gibberish. Grown-up gibberish. Baby-talk gibberish. Do they understand one word of it to start? Somehow they begin to if they hear it. I’m letting Helen hear it.” “Other children are not impaired.” “Oh, there’s nothing impaired in her head. It works like a mousetrap.” “Then when will she learn?” “Maybe after a million words.” (60th Anniversary)
