This written version of my Willard R. Zemlin Lecture is condensed from the oral version delivered at the ASHA annual Convention in San Diego, November 2005. With the condensation, it has lost some of the humor and some of the stories about the characters who generated the data. There was no way around it. This version is not as good as the oral one. You had to be there.
Stories were interwoven with facts in the oral version of the Lecture, as they are in this written version. As Hoffmann (2004)  notes, “facts are mute,” “human beings do science,” and “science and stories are not only compatible, they’re inseparable.”
