Who’s Ken Wheeler?

The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th Edition (DSM 5), lists a condition known as Delusional Disorder, Grandiose Type. The central theme of this condition is, “the conviction of having some great talent or insight or of having made some important discovery.”

Experts have contradicted Kentucky Ken on all of these claims using facts and evidence, but he persists in asserting them. He appears to wholeheartedly believe his peculiar conceits, even though they’re all patently absurd.
