What Am I Doing Here in This Fishbowl?

There's a new greeting card company which now offers cards featuring people with disabilities -- Fishbowl Cards, Inc.

I'm not sure how I feel about the idea. Of course, there seem to be greeting cards for almost every occasion -- divorce, for example -- and I do understand the impetus for dolls and other toys to be offered that reflect the identity of the buyer.

But, the ugly truth be told -- and despite nearly 50-years riding around boob-high to the world -- I would not put disability as the first element of that which makes up Gary.

The card designs are interesting, and fill a niche, all the same, and I wouldn't be offended if someone chose to send me one.
