New York Times Paying Attention

Posted February 9th, 2010 by Anthony

Little by little, the good, gray Times has started to recognize disability. Sometimes, it’s even bold in recognizing our perception of the lived experience of disability, rather than the stereotypes. The boldest that I noticed was, of course, the articles written by the late Harriet McBryde Johnson.

Last week I noticed on my Times RSS feed a story on post-polio syndrome. It’s not bad. I like the arc of the story. It quickly moves from an historical perspective to the needs of today’s survivors. If the New York Times can slowly thaw and recognize our community, there’s hope.
