I know the mark of a civilized society is how much the majority is willing to slow down to help those who have trouble keeping up, but this is just silly::
The U.S. discriminates against blind people by printing paper money that makes it impossible for them to distinguish among the bills' varying values, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.
The ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upholds a decision by a lower court in 2006. It could force theto redesign its money. Suggested changes have ranged from making bills different sizes to printing them with raised markings.
In how many ways are the blind -- or the deaf or the invalid or the, uh, aging ungracefully -- unable to participate fully in ordinary life? How much should everybody else have to give to level the playing field?
