Re: I'm so tired of this bullshit ...

Matt and I have found a topic we agree on! And another thing: Every print and broadcast journalist in the world needs to understand that people are not "wheelchair bound" or "confined to a wheelchair". Wheelchairs don't confine people, they liberate them. If you want to put them in a bind, take away...

Wish I could post a pic. There was a pickup at the local ACO, with a handicapped placard and a veterans plate, parked diagonally in the center of FOUR handicapped spaces, blocking all FOUR.
That's malice. There's no excuse for that.

Re: I'm so tired of this bullshit ...

I try not to assume malice. And while we're on the subject, it's illegal to park on the blue striped areas next to some handicapped spots. That's to leave room for the ramps wheelchair users need to get in and out of their vehicles. If you block it with a car, shopping cart, etc., you can keep someo...

Re: I'm so tired of this bullshit ...

I specifically said that I didn't want the person to lose their job. My aim was and is to educate people. I made a similar complaint some years ago after I attended an outdoor concert put on by WCSX. There were several handicapped parking spaces that had been commandeered for use as a staging/loadin...

Re: Credit score

Some of you appear to knowledgeable in things so I want to throw this question out. My wife has a family member that used to live out of state. They moved up here and stayed in a campground for the summer, and bought a house in the fall. During the time they were in the campground, they had their m...

Re: I'm so tired of this bullshit ...

And there's no way you can "appreciate" what we go through any more than I can "appreciate" what it's like to be black or a woman. Unless it hits you, a family member or a friend, you haven't a clue.

Re: I'm so tired of this bullshit ...

I appreciate your situation and the work you've done for disabled children, but I still disagree with the way you handled it. Did the guy not see the note when you were on the phone to the company? I can't tell you what she saw, but she did not take the note from under the wiper. I've spent my life...

Busybodies. How so? Seriously? First you left a note, then you called their company? Did it ever occur to you to say something to them while you were there? Of course you didn't. You are a busybody Karen with a passive aggressive streak... the absolute worst kind. Dismissed. REALLY? I’ve met Vic be...

I'm so tired of this bullshit ...

Pulled into NB I-75 rest area at Holly Road this morning and the cleaning crew's truck was parked in a handicapped spot. Went inside, did my business, left a polite note on the windshield and called the company. The receptionist was horrified. She asked me for phone number and email and said she was...

Just curious:

Is any station in Metro Detroit still broadcasting content using SCA subcarriers?

I can’t recall if WDET used to have Radio Talking Book services back in the day.

Don’t have a receiver to check.
I volunteered at DRIS in the late 1980s. It's still around.

Re: Used to Be A Normal Person

I didn't think murdering political opponents was an acceptable response. Guess I was wrong.
