    And so was Mrs Harlow (with a silent “T”, I wonder? My, how she’s changed).

    ’Twas merely a typo, which I have corrected (below)

    Shame on you, Captain! Mrs Harlow was trying, really hard. Really.

    Mrs Harlow looks like the offspring of Margaret Thatcher and Barbara Bush.

    I once took a sensitivity to disabilities course in college. (It was needed for a medical degree) I thought the class would be the time and place to ask honest questions and become educated about issues surrounding disabilities, etc., but it just made me nervous to talk to disabled people in general. I think if we had a better teacher heading up the class, it could have been really informative – sadly, that was not the case. Now I’m just hoping not to make an *ss out of myself like Mrs. Harlow. :/

    Indeed, as George Carlin said – there’s no shame associated with “cripple”.

    One of my all time faces. I’ve wanted to do this to people who are nervous around me. And to BluePumpkin, just relax and be yourself. If you make an *ss out of yourself, it just means you’re human like the rest of us.

    My mother was a diabetic, among other things, and spent the last 8 years of her life in a wheelchair. I don’t call that crippled, I call that disabled. I think you should say its all subjective.

    I used to think I was poor. Then they told me that I wasn’t poor, I was needy. Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as needy; I was deprived. (Oh not deprived but rather underprivileged.) I still don’t have a dime, but I have a great vocabulary.
