This story just gets more bizarre by the hour...does any of this change the way you feel about Donald Sterling?

Seems scuzzy. My dad has intermittent dementia, but he's fairly competent most of the time. It's a day-by-day thing. When you get to be 80*, it's not unusual. It's a sliding scale. Acting as if Sterling is incompetent seems pretty weak. We really suck at dealing with the elderly, don't we? shake

I was surprised to come to the difficult realization that, as much as I thought I hated racism, it turns out I hate Steve Ballmer just a little bit more.

It feels scuzzy...but I don't think he is in on it. Unless he is super scuzzy...which he may be. I think his wife hates him, doesn't care about the team as much as she cares about her 50% of 2 billion.

He's posturing to sue anyone and everyone over the whole deal, so it'll be interesting to see how it all plays out. My guess is he's going to be dead before this is all settled.

My dad died at 75 to dementia because he forgot how to swallow so it is a risk for me.

I may already have alzheimer's tho-- because I've already forgotten how to care about this issue.

It does sound iffy, but from both sides. But I have to say that people with some kind of Alzheimer's do not know they have it (and can get quite nasty when people say they do. One of the tragedies of this kind of mental illness is that often the victim is wholly unaware of their degree of impairment.

But (as others have said) we do not know what the situation really is, and what is needed is for a court appointed physician to test him.

This is not a disagreement, simply a clarification from my point of view:

People with dementia, be it Alzheimers or other, in the early stages often forget but are able to cover. For example, they will call the granddaughter by mother's name if there is a striking resemblance but are still aware enough to know they made a faux pas based on people's reaction.

In the early stages they are very much aware that they are getting forgetful. They may be in denial of how bad it is getting.
True, but when you are running a multimillion pound company such "minor" mistakes can have massive repercussions.
