Dan, That's a very good point. Some of you are ni cer than I would be, but also, I can see that I could get into trouble. In Pratik's example, I might hve been tempted to mke a smart remark, or try to, but then I might have gotten into a fight. Well, maybe, actually faced with situations such as you all describe, maybe I would bite my tongue--it's easy for me sitting here at my computer to be bold and equally rude, but faced with a real situation I probably would ignore it. I did once ask a person in a wheelchair, who was a paraplegic, if there was pain, but I had been talking to him for quite some time and noticed that he would adjust his position from time to time. I had assumed that people who were paralysed had no feeling in the paralysed parts, but evidently that's not true in every case.
