hey Miriam

one would think you were an oversensitive singer / songwriter or a girl ?
if you can take Thrash's lashing (o innit kind o fun to make rude comments
about gender) surely a man can choose to unsubscribe at any time. it could
be coincidence that's Mr_Recchion is unsubscribing at this time. i've had
people be rude because o th wheel chair and dis ability. . . give th man
th benefit o th doubt or you'll be a nazi-fem with disability . . . or a
crutch on your shoulders . . .

if there were no Affirmative Action i wouldn't even be on this DIS cuss
list . . . :-) . .. .AA goes both ways - progress and abuses in process of
diversification in work/educ place .. .

thanks to all th brave souls who've amplified th voices of th dis
enfanchised . . . and have made life alot easier for people with dis
abilities to participate fully in society . . .
