New Times should be more sensitive



For the next Street Talk section in your upcoming New Times, I suggest you survey four adults living with disabilities concerning how it feels to see the word “retarded” used flippantly and printed in your magazine as a cheap attempt for laughs. However shallow the child you interviewed is, is really of no concern to me. A publication such as yours should demonstrate a little more sensitivity in language.
