As many of you know, I am adamantly opposed to the use of the word retard. In the past few weeks I have been amazed at how many really intelligent adults I know who use it. It even showed up in a book I was reading. I was so disappointed I am planning on writing the author. If you haven't read this before, take some time now-even if you have, reread it. It changed my life. I hope it does the same for you.
