When you read a sentence like “Lots of retarded–ahem, mentally challenged–people love Huey Lewis and the News,” it’s hard not to crack jokes. Does anyone else but retarded people like that guy’s music? But when you read a detailed account of how roughly 10% of the people at any given Huey Lewis concert have developmental difficulties, it’s a little sobering and surprising, like hearing that Morrissey has a huge Latino fan base. Katy St. Clair explains it all here.
