    Thanks, Chan, it sums up why I hate any use of a “hyphenated” American. Of course it’s also irritating how saying “American” is easier than saying “United Statesan” or Citizen of the U.S., but so many Americans ignore the fact the U.S. is only a small portion of “the Americas”. They are the same ones who feel all those other countries should be our economic supporters or servants.

    Same one who signed NEPA, The Clean Air Act, and actually did a number of good things, besides “being a crook”.

    Opinion: Architectural barriers act in ’68 was actually first, and none had anything specific to do with veterans, ’Nam or otherwise. Counting the elderly, etc, roughly 40% of the population actually has some degree of physical or mental disability.

    The ADA btw doesn’t actually “sue cities”, a complaint is filed with DOJ and they investigate, and suggest or order changes to accommodate the disabled. If the “recipient” doesn’t comply, then they can enforce financial penalties.

    The majority of economic suits folks see are the result of STATE LAWS, like in Florida, where the lawyers have found another “golden calf”. The federal law looks for resolution of “problems” , not financial payoffs. BTW, California was ahead of the feds on seeking accommodation of people with disabilities with architectural changes, and did a quite good job.

    1 Opinion, part of being “an American” is caring about our neighbors, that includes the disabled. I also worked on our state disabilities commission with a number of firms like you mention. Another interesting aside as to “cost” of the ADA. In one fairly typical case, we had a business that was told by an architect that it would cost $60,000 to meet the ADA upgrade requirements for his existing building. I showed him how to fully meet the law for around $650!!!

    As to PAJ (Zit’s) constant insults, I not only have a considerable resume, but also a considerable number of awards and “thank you plaques” on my post-retirement “vanity wall” in my home office.

    And back to the ‘toon, I DO appreciate Chan’s sentiment with this one.

    … and tomorrow Lowe will go back to telling us who the “real” Americans and “real” patriots are …

    Maybe if you used that term more instead of differentiating so much between “xx-american” you wouldn´t see so many issues (so many, not none at all).
