Where I work we have the TV tuned on CNN during the work day. One of the stories that was repeated was the protest of "Tropic Thunder" by Members of the Coalition of National Disability Organizations.
At some point, Timothy Shriver was being interviewed. He expressed his opinion about the use of the word "retard" and how the last thing these people need is a "kick in the tongue...teeth."
I heard that and thought that I would love to be a fly on the wall of his grey matter so that I could know what he was thinking when he realized what he said. The other thing that happened is I started to laugh. Periodically, throughout the day, I suffered from fits of laughter.
Of course, I held my composure during the funeral service for a co-worker who had died of a massive heart attack or a stroke last week. He was a great guy and we'll miss him terribly. He also had a great sense of humor, so I'm thinking he would have loved this!
