Berube Writes about Disability and Democracy
Michael Berube is a prolific and gifted scholar I admire very much. His observation about disability in American culture always make me think in new ways and are challenging at multiple levels. I just came across an article he wrote at Crooked Timber (http://crookedtimber.org/2008/04/22/disability-and-democracy/) two days ago. Berube sarcastically writes that it is well past time to write about Obama and Clinton respective views on disability because "(a) no one knows the candidates have policy positions on disability and (b) policy positions on disability are not as important as flag pins." I urge readers to go to Crooked Timber and read what Berube has written as his words are as entertaining as they are thought provoking.
