Bloggers 'R' Us


"The above link has to be a hoax right?"

A reader directs us to the Did I Miss Something blog -- found here. The link mentioned in the blog is about .... uh, freezing people. "Gimps on a Stick," as our correspondent put it.

Now the elderly, the critically ill and the disabled don't just have to worry about:
1. Right to lifers keeping them here when they'd rather shuffle off to the hearafter.
2. Right to Die folks making it just too easy for caregivers to relieve themselves of that burdensome ill, old, or disabled person.

But there's no reason for us to report it here when you can read it all yourself at http://midlifeandtreachery.blogspot.com -- look for the April 23 post, or just click here.

More and more folks are blogging. Pretty soon we'll all be doing it.

Some of the best disability commentary around is now coming from blogs: Why not take a look for yourself? Some of our favorites are:

  • The Gimp Parade, which has had particularly good pieces recently on Pioneer plans town for sign language users and another on Jarek Molski's suing exploits in California. The Gimp Parade, like the others we've listed, is well worth a daily - or weekly visit.
  • Disability Law -- a good blog by ADA attorneys
  • Temple University's Disability Studies
  • Matthew's Blog
  • Alas, A Blog
  • Crippled Monkey weblog -- from the BBC Ouch! site
  • NAG (Ragged Edge contributor John Kelly's Neighborhood Access Group blog)
  • Broken Clay
  • Disconcerted Daily
  • Scott Rains' Rolling Rains Report, which he calls "Precipitating Dialogue on Travel, Disability, and Universal Design"
  • There are hundreds of crip blogs now -- who knows? Maybe thousands! Like everything else on the Web, it's sort of a case of wander-around-till-you-find-it. These are the ones we know about, but there are likely many many more good ones.

    If you know of one that's especially good, let us know and we'll put it up here.
