Tomorrow marks a historical day, and potentially the pinnacle of George W. Bush's legacy-- the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act amendment. These changes will bring more disabilities into the protected class, and strengthen the laws that are currently on the books. Another ADA (American Diabetes Assocation) has worked hard on advocacy for this legislation, as well as other organizations.
This is a moment of victory and celebration. While all is not equal and the playing field is still not level, by any stretch of the imagination, minority groups always find their incresed membership in the franchaise of democracy is always accessed (and ensured) through legislation.
