My piece on the statistical association between hearing loss and dementia, in today's New York Times, generated (at this writing) more than 200 responses. So many smart comments, so many interesting thoughts, so many people with hearing loss!

 Read the story, read the podcast (the Times provided a transcript for those with hearing loss) or listen to it if you are able, and see the video.
