Alex P. Keaton was an Auspie

My daughter came home last night with her school newspaper (written, designed, etc. by 4th and 5th graders). They interviewed a kid from their school who has Ausperger's syndrome, which I thought was very cool. I know just enough to recognize the name and the basics behind the syndrome. At the end of the article though they list a "fact" about Auspergers is that Bill Clinton, Albert Einstein, and Bill Gates are fellow Auspies. This is news to me, how about you? I can't seem to find any information that successfully contradicts or supports this unexpected claim.

My first response was "Where'd they get that information?" and I Googled it and came up with famous people
. And all subsequent sites seem to either reproduce this same list or just point back to this site. I'm thinking this could be a teaching moment for the kids about getting information from the internet, but want to make sure I
can get the right information from the internet.
