Paralyzed since I was 18 years old, I have spent much of the last 30 years thinking about the reasons why the social life of crippled people is so different from those who ambulate on two feet. After reading about the so called Ashley Treatment I decided it was time to write a book about my life as a crippled man. My book, Bad Cripple: A Protest from an Invisible Man, will be published by Counter Punch. I hope my book will completed soon.

A New Beginning
I have started this blog for a number of reasons. First, I want to prove to my son Tom that I may not quite be as stupid as he thinks I am. Second, I want to comment on disability related topics I see in the news that have a skewed perpective. Third, I am impressed with disability related blogs and want to add my views with regard to the social implications of disability. Fourth, I want to my name and work to become more public so when my book, Bad Cripple: A Protest from an Invisible Man, is published next year it will sell, sell, sell.
