      One of the few outright victories in Wisconsin this year, for people with disabilities, was a law to change the terminology "mental retardation" to "intellectual disability" in all Wisconsin statutory language.  And much of the need for the switch is the casual "tard" kind of stuff that's gotten so common.

      I know you recognize it as bad, but I'm looking to speak up wherever I see it (and might be listened to!)

      :-)
