Writings that the Main Stream Media wouldn’t touch:


Entry to the Washington Post “Autobiography as Haiku” contest (Feb. 2006).

For a while after _______ was born, I had hopes that she would
be the first person having Down syndrome to graduate from the
university where I teach.  With the tougher admissions standards
now in place, she didn't get in.

Sometimes I get to walk her from my office to her part-time job
at the dining hall a couple blocks away.  For those few minutes
I feel like a big man on campus - walking and chatting with the
cutest 22-year-old at Mr. Jefferson's University!
