Hi, all. I realize that Alan has the best of intentions regarding
people with disabilities.

However, I feel the need to point out that classifying people as either
"disabled" or "normal" will alienate members of the disability rights
community - who have been fighting for years to avoid being
characterized as "abnormal" - and will make it easier for
anti-technology forces to falsely characterize technologists as being
indifferent or worse to issues of concern to people with disabilities.

Regards,
Barbara
