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.
Jess Wright talk courtesy of wearemany.org. Thanks to Robin Upton, producer of "Unwelcome Guests" (unwelcomeguests.net), for acquainting me with this talk.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "thumb") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
This installment of New World Notes is available also on The Internet Archive (www.archive.org).
