And NBC's in-house physician Nancy Snyderman filed that only story all day that had any hint of an overseas angle. A study by the Cass Business School in London claimed that as many as one in three American entrepreneurs had been identified with the dyslexia learning disability as a child. Snyderman illustrated dyslexic problems with an eight-year-old's typical writing error: Awen Most Grenk Hir Milk is a rendition of Ann Must Drink Her Milk. The business school's theory is that dyslexic people develop other skills to compensate--skills like oral communication, delegation of tasks, problem solving--that stand them in good stead later in life. Snyderman cited the Virgin conglomerate's tireless Richard Branson as her Exhibit A, even though he himself attributes his success "in small part" to his dyslexia.
