Again we "compare great things with small." First, JESS WRIGHT tells the history of "disability" in America. People with impairments are labelled "disabled" when the economic system doesn't need them to fill a job. (When more workers are needed, many of the "disabled" become "able"--as in US factories during World War II.)
Then KD reads & discusses a newspaper story about a tragic disability afflicting many women in America: gray hair. And about the awful consequences of failing to use hair dye.
