Often the most compelling stories about disability have nothing to do with one's medical condition. Susan M LoTempio instructs the influentual journalism blog Poynter.org how to get it right.

I'd just seen this myself, and thought it so exciting and so common-sense all at once. Let's hope it's not a fluke!

Bravo to her! Journalists need more education on the subject.

Here is a link to an article of mine from January 8th's Washington Post. I'm new to this, but let me know if I got it "right" or not.

Yes, you got it exactly right. I've just now referred to your op-ed in my Edge-Centric blog entry on ABC's abysmal new reality show, Miracle Workers.

As a person with a disability, I think that this article is right on. I am so tired of the stories that depict people with disabilities as an inspiration, as though it's somehow our obligation to be an inspiration to the non-disabled. There are not enough stories about disability discrimination issues. There are not enough stories about people with disabilities expressing outrage over the prejudices that they face in society.
