In the movie, “Rain Man,” Dustin Hoffman played an autistic man who had what are called, “Savant” abilities.
Not every person with autism has savant abilities, but about 10% of them do.

In this edition of the Buckley Report, meet Blake and see if you think his work stands up favorable to some of the masters.
