Culture Gap, vol 1

Today I got up and made coffee and toast and decided to watch BBC Breakfast to wake up. One of their reporters was a nice man who was obviously a Thalidomide Baby (arms), and who had one eye that was mostly shut. We didn't see him doing the slow power walk so common in the news media, but he did everything else. He even picked things up and showed them to the camera.

Can you imagine this on Good Morning, America?

Way to go, Britain!

We have a parapalegic reporter on WCCO, but she's got all her limbs, but only two work. And she doesn't have to pick things up with her feet. It's just not the same. Go Brits!

But she's dull as dirt, so that adds a handicap.
