Affirmative action

In todays era of affirmative action and politically correct
speaking, it is no longer acceptable to say handicapped or
disabled. Challenged is now the acceptable term.

Such was the case when a morning radio personality (somewhere
around Maryland) recently reported a traffic jam caused by a
mechanically challenged vehicle.

The unfortunate thing about using the word challenged when
referring to a disabled person is, it wont change the nature of their
disability, nor is it likely to change peoples feelings toward them.
Instead, as has happened with so many other words, challenged will
take on the new meaning. Twenty years from now, when we say that a
skier was challenged by an expert slope, we will probably mean that
he broke his leg.
