Hey ya'll! I got all dolled up and snuck into a conference room at The New York Times. They're doing a new series on disability. Send your writings to them. And because I know you're gonna ask: No, you absolutely cannot cuss in The Times. Good luck!
I mention the philosopher Shelley Tremain in this video. You can find her work here: https://independent.academi...
