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.

I lost power Saturday afternoon. After three days I gave up keeping my place warm. Too much work. The fish in my aquarium all dead. My complaint list is long and I am not a happy camper. Worse yet my skin broke down. Saw MD, not a real problem but it could become one in a heartbeat. Very worried and in desperate need of power that makes my life go. The storm on Saturday that brought over a foot of snow at my house caused far more damage than hurricane Irene. At best, I hope to get power back Friday. Next week is more likely. I will post some pictures when power comes back. My property was hit pretty hard, likely lost my beloved American chest nut trees. Never thought I would say this after last year but I miss my clinitron bed and living room.
