This seems like an ultimately humane way to address the 'smoker' issue on lower State St. Now public and private agencies need to provide programs that engage ALL the residents of 845 Broadway in productive SAFE activities.

daily, you are quite correct. many do rise above a variety of circumstances to become competent and productive. i would still harbor some worry if they suspected i publicly called their parents 'animals.'

i recommend you check local health care hiring practices to get a sense of the demographic seeking and getting entry level jobs. remember, dietary aids, c.n.a's and l.p.n's are the positions with the most patient contact AND least ultimate responsibility.

good health to u and yours

I believe asking the public ''to give'' any minority group member anything is just as stigmatizing and inhumane as denying something to someone based on their characteristics. Asking us ''to give,'' only reinforces the status relationship you decry.

If his HEART IS IN' the Senate, he should run for a SENATE SEAT. If he's an attorney, i'd expect him to better parse his quotes for attribution.

Since 'person first' language changes weekly, and is usually driven by the diagnostic demographic using it in the moment, i recommend going with disabled persons.

What do you think Edison and Steinmetz wrought for Schenectady. Their genius and entrepeneurial spirit gave us brown fields, catacombs filled with 'stuff' with 10,000 year half lifes leaching into the Mohawk River, higher rates of birth defects, and a false sense of security.
