Hello. I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday. It’s my first quiet weekend in ages and the calm before the holiday rush.

I’ve discussed at length my indignation with the media response to the murder of the disabled, but I do not believe I’ve talked much concerning fictional programming.
Last weekend I had an interesting twitter chat concerning disability and its representation in television. That conversation led to a podcast concerning Sheldon Cooper…
and so here are my thought concerning the questions the podcast author posed.
