    Janeal Lee who won the Ms. Wheelchair competition had her title pulled when a local newspaper showed a picture of her standing with fellow math students at school. Ms. Lee does have muscular dystrophy and does require the use of a scooter, but can stand for some period of time.

    This seems so unbelievable to me - to tell a person we don't want you because you still have the ability to stand on occassion. When does she get to be a card carrying member of the handicapped? It also reminds me of those deaf groups who are opponents to cochlear (sp) transplants. Their cry of "why should we hear" is ridiculous.

    My rant for the day,
