Waging War on Disability

Blog

As thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people take in the message on the side of this Seattle streetcar, one must pause for a moment to make note of the implications. On some level, this is a slogan designed to “rev people up” to support research, to give money, maybe to raise awareness.

What More Can I Do?

Blog

A Seasoned Mind

Blog

Curiosity is a hard commodity to come by these days.  Many of us seem to be backed into our respective corners, surrounding ourselves with like-minded people, and reinforcing our own positions on most everything.
