It's Not Too Late to See the Rain Man After All

A Daily RFT post on Tuesday joked that Kim Peek, the developmentally disabled genius who inspired Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man, is incredibly gifted when it comes to memorizing dates and times.

Perhaps Peek is looking for a job as a blogger, because this writer is obviously not so good with such details.

An attentive reader pointed out that Peek is actually scheduled to appear on Monday, October 12, at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, not this past Monday, October 5, as originally reported.

In the words of another idiot-savant, one Homer J. Simpson, d'oh.

Apologies for the mix-up. Go hear the man's amazing story and see him show off his prodigious memory. Complete event info here. It's free. You won't be disappointed.

And now the best moment in Rain Man:
