Dudley Clendinen is an award-winning author and journalist who lives here in Baltimore.  A former reporter and editorial writer for The New York Times, he found out in November, at age 66, that he has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, more popularly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.There is no known cure for ALS, and once a person is diagnosed, they usually live between 1.5 to 3 years.

Over the past ten months, Dudley has been speaking with Tom Hall about living with ALS.  In this conversation, Dudley talks about how having the chance to talk and write about his time Lou Gehrig’s disease has given him a sense of purpose.
