Who else tuned in -- out of morbid curiosity if nothing else -- to see Dick Clark on New Year's Eve? It was nice to see him again, and he actually doesn't look too bad for someone who's been through a stroke. He's obviously a bit aphasic -- his elocution was somewhat slurred, though it was pretty easy to understand him. Still, his awareness and sentence structure showed that his mind seems to be working okay. He's not struggling for words, only for the ability to clearly enunciate them. It was really kind of bittersweet -- sad to see him in that condition, but nice to know that it's no worse than that. The guy deserves props for putting himself on TV again. Good job, Dick. See you next year.
