    On another note one of the clerks in Lowes home improvement store told me that Lowes sometimes gives discounts on large ticket items to the handicapped people. And I loved the washing machine we were were buying for the can not turn the knob(s) the wrong way. Wonderfull for a retarded person.
    by using them do you mean giving them an opportunity to feel productive is wrong?

    No, I do not mean those companies etc. who hire them out of the goodness of their heart. I'm talking about the companies etc. who hire the handicapped to get the tax credits or whatever it is called. I'm guessing that that little perk is still available to whoever hires them. If you were deeply involved in the life of a handicapped person you would know of their hurt feelings etc. when their employer/boss expects more of them and demands it when they don't have the brains to get it right. I have always considered you to be a 'good guy' but my faith in you is wavering.
