Twenty-six minors received an unwelcome surprise Friday night, when Omaha Police responded to a disturance call reporting at 2211 Maple Street and cited all 26 for minor in possession of alcohol.
Asperger's Syndrome, or AS, is a common condition part of a larger subset of developmental disorders collectively known as the autism spectrum. Individuals who have AS are often very intelligent and have focused and narrowly defined interests, but have difficulty understanding and interpreting social cues, such as tone of voice and body language. Often they seem aloof, uncaring or even rude, when in reality they simply don't understand. They must be taught the social skills that their typically developing peers learn naturally, which can be a laborious process.
Despite high profile jobs and a very public life, former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel tries to remain private.
"I think keeping a little corner for yourself is really important to keep yourself balanced rather than trying to be on the stage all the time and trying to deal with the glare of publicity," Hagel said.
But that "glare of publicity" has been stronger than ever. And it's likely to continue as Hagel was nominated by President Barack Obama for secretary of defense on Jan. 7.
