Kathy Shaidle: Missing Richard Widmark
I'm not crippled, though my mother was; so, I am confident that I understand, as well as any able-bodied person can, what living as a cripple is like.
And, I totally agree with the comments of "FFF’s resident crippled correspondent".
"Genuinely disabled people like the blind, Paralyzed, severely retarded etc. are not helped by wasting resources on the faux cripple. In fact the only people helped by our current state of affairs are the tax sucking bureaucrats, lawyers and “service” providers who are merely bilking the system."
A widespread, and particularly obnoxious, example of this is the reserved "handicapped parking" spots. Pay attention to who parks in those spots -- they are almost never actually disabled persons. They are almost always the "faux crippled" who get themselves declared "disabled" purely for the benefit of the reserved parking.
