I saw that and was stunned that they could do such a thing. Knowing the story now made me feel better about the error.
As most of you know I worked for years with people with disabilities. Some of you even got to meet my Patty on the Glory cruise.
I realize that people toss that word around almost as much as they do the "F-bomb" I just wish they would realize the hurt they could be inflicting on an innocent person. Retarded does not mean stupid!
Now I will climb don from my soapbox and go away!
