  1. Fascinating stuff, isn’t it? Regarding the message-board thread where this all started, I cannot tell you how much I’m over people who “work with” disabled populations telling me what they decree these populations shall be called. You… don’t get to decide that. Sorry.

    Anyway, I’m glad you’re along for the advocacy ride, personally.

  2. Fee—we might take up on that sling fitting offer. Lisa is really skinny, and I’m really not, and we need someone to measure that’s in the middle :). I’ll let you know!
