Levi, TOM, Alzheimer's discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek


The ad council present the story of Tom and Levi. Tom is the smartest man I know. He's been a professor at two major universities been a teacher for over 40 years.

I also noticed that he was letting his class out earlier than they were supposed to let out. And he was telling them that he was doing it as a favor to them. But I think in reality he just wanted to give out of there. I was really starting to worry because I saw something was wrong.
