Pushing Limits

Pushing Limits – October 20, 2006

Doyle Saylor and Adrienne Lauby will interview Suzanne Levine on the subject of use of
language in reporting on disability. Ms. Levine is an expert in public
education surrounding disability and word use. Friday’s show "Words of
Respect" illustrates the disability rights movements demand that journalists
and other writers give serious consideration to the words they use about
people with disabilities. The show will also feature a poem by Neil Marcus
titled "Language" on this very issue.
