No link. Just watching the Ed Shultz show and it was his parting remark. Maybe Rachel, who's on now, will say something.

OAKLAND, Calif. The Iraq War veteran injured during a clash between police and anti-Wall Street protesters is unable to speak, but can otherwise communicate and is expected to make a full recovery.

Alameda County Medical Center Chief Surgeon Dr. Alden Harken said Scott Olsen had improved dramatically since he was hospitalized unconscious Tuesday night with a fractured skull and bruised brain.

By Thursday afternoon, Harken says, the 24-year-old Olsen was interacting with his parents, doing math equations and otherwise showing signs of "high-level cognitive functioning." The doctor says he may require surgery, but that's unlikely.

Hospital spokesman Vintage Foster says Olsen smiled when Mayor Jean Quan stopped by to visit and expressed surprise at all the attention his injury has generated.
