Random thoughts…

Here are a few random thoughts on a busy* week:

One accessibility improvement that’s long overdue: Make the bags inside cereal boxes easier to open. Most people with full manual dexterity mangle those beasts. They’re just one bit of evidence of systemic bias against the disabled. It’s time to rethink the whole idea.

I read an article in an MS periodical that referred to “service [as in military service] connected” MS. So there’s something about serving in the military that causes MS? Is there something they’re not telling us?

Quote overheard at an MS presentation: “things turn out best for people who make the best of how things turn out.” What do you think?

There’s something about the term “disease modifying therapies” that’s unsettling. Saying these drugs merely “modify” MS shows a distinct lack of confidence in them. Otherwise, why aren’t they called disease abating, mitigating, or reducing? Just one more thing that makes me say, “Hmmmmm.”

Could I be too cognitively impaired to know if I’m cognitively impaired?

Just wondering, is all…


 

*Why am I busy? Because I’m emcee and trivia jockey for this event.
