    "I believe the indefinite article she is looking for is "an"."

    Agreed. I don`t know how to screw that rule up. It makes the entire sentence stop flowing just because you forgot a letter.

    I have an aunt with Down`s Syndrome. She lives by herself in her own apartment. She held a job for 30 years as a hotel cleaning lady until she was forced into retirement by a new manager who didn`t want to "deal" with her. She`s 63 and comes over for every birthday and every holiday. I compare others to her to make them feel insignificant and stupid.

    Mary: No, I mean...
    Pat Healy: We got this one kid, Mongo... He`s got a forehead like a drive-in movie theatre, but he`s a good ship. So we don`t bust his chops too much. So, one day Mongo gets out of his cage...
    Mary: They keep him in a cage?
    Pat Healy: Well, it`s just an enclosure...
    Mary: No, but they keep him confined?
    Pat Healy: Right, yeah.
    Mary: That`s bullpoo!
    Pat Healy: Well, that`s what I said! So, I went out and I got him, uh, I got him a leash.
    Mary: A leash?
    Pat Healy: Yeah, one of those ones you can hook on the clothesline, and he can run back and forth and, uh, there`s plenty of room for him to dig and play. That kid

    Okay, now that pmarren has lowered the bar so dramatically, let me say that Down is a very strange disorder. Some people are pleasant, high functioners who work very hard to gain an education and fit in with society. At the other end of the spectrum are seriously impacted individuals with considerable physical handicaps and an inability to speak. Let`s give people a chance before we decide where they rate compared to our own wonderful selves.

    I seriously wish that everyone who makes idiotic comments about handicapped people will one day have a child with such a condition. I can only hope karma catches up to you all and your ignorance bites you in the ass. No one chooses to be born with handicap like down syndrome, so why taunt someone for something so out of their own control?

    faaaag, I don`t suppose I made any sort of claim that my statement was FLAWLESSLY logical. May I beg your pardon for my rhetoric. Just a personal thought that I shared, which I rarely do on such forums because people like you who just enjoy arguing anything regardless. The point I was attempting make is that I believe most of those who make fun of handicapped people don`t hate them as you imply, but just need to learn something about compassion and the human condition. I would dare to surmise, please excuse me you highness if I am not 100% correct however, that most of the people who say these things have probably never really gotten to know someone with a mental disability. Therefore, having some first hand experience would help to alleviate some of their ignorance and malice. I am very certain you will have some snide remark back, and posting this is an endless circle of internet arguments that no one will ever win. Alas though, I have said my peace. Enjoy your grumpy life!

    To parallel a frequently used quote by Black G.I.`s during the Vietnam war; "No Downs Syndrome person ever called me a retard."

    It`s unfortunate that most people will never have any experience interacting with Downs persons.

    They may be what some call "retarded", but on the whole they lack almost every negative emotion and personality fault that plague "regular" folk. They are generally happy, optimistic, generous, kind, loving, and always find the beauty and wonder in things that I don`t give a second thought to.

    I am better for sharing my life with my Downs friends.

    I echo Kalimata`s sentiments.

    As a father of a Downs child I know 1st hand the qualities they have and in my experience they are more loving, caring & accepting than most normal people I meet.
    Years ago I also had a couple working for me, and they are harder, more concientious and generally all round better workers than the majority of teenagers around today.

    Despite the challenges that face them, they work hard to achieve their potential which is more than can be said for todays youth. The real "retards" are those who despite having access to the best education, healthcare, opportunities & not having to contend with serious health issues, learning difficulities, visual & hearing problems STILL manage to make nothing of their lives.

    Most of my family have disabilities of one kind or other. I worked with a guy who had downs and to me he was a lovely bloke who was an Elvis fan, enjoyed old war movies and was into the big bands such as Glenn Miller. I`m partially deaf in both ears but I love music and put together some tracks for a church disco a while back. Never stereotype people with disabilities. Get to know us and you will meet some wonderful people.
