I just have a couple of pieces of crip-related linkage today. First this by Chris. It's a nice, short piece reflecting on the process of being stared at. I've written about it before, although not for some time: as disabled people, we seem to attract long, curious stares from others, usually people who aren't used to being around guys like me. As Chris says, it's an odd, slightly disquieting feeling. You feel insulted and indignant, yet you also know people are just curious. He raises one or two points on the subject I hadn't considered, such as a parallel with rubbernecking, so it's worth a read.
Second, on saturday at the powerchair football, I met Daniel. A great fellow, he's training for the bar. I received an email from him this morning,and he directed me to his website. I thought it, too, was well worth directing your attention to, especially his piece on Magna Carta and legal aid. I may only have met him saturday, but I really look forward to getting to know dan and picking his brains on all kinds of legal matters.
