In last week's edition of the online Matilda Ziegler Magazine for the Blind, Karen Crowter wrote an article about storms. I personally think thunderstorms are really cool. It's fun to see the lightning and here the thunder, especially when a thunderbanger hits right over your head (as long as the power doesn't go out.) One of God's truly beautiful spectacles.
In the same magazine Bob Branco's op-ed piece is about blind people not being able to do certain things they should know how to do and people thinking their lack of skill in this area is because they are blind. In a way, this is often the case. Many times blind people don't get adequate training in life skills and fall through the cracks.
The April 9-16 issue of Maclean's has an article about gas sniffing on a northern Ontario reserve, rare in scope and depth for magazine articles these days. The piece really shows that social programs don't work.
