Hawking to Make Full Recovery

Good news: After being rushed to the hospital yesterday after suffering a serious respiratory infection, world’s smartest man Stephen Hawking is now expected to make a full recovery. When the Brief History of Time author, who is paralyzed with ALS and speaks with a voice synthesizer, went into the hospital for tests, his condition was deemed “more serious than routine.” Now Hawking remains in the hospital but is said to be in “comfortable condition.”
