Can't Stand It

Janeal Lee, the disabled woman who had her "Ms. Wheelchair" title taken away last week because she had the gall to stand up, has been given a new title: Miss disAbility International (get it? clever!), as dispensed by George Kerford of the World Association Of Persons With Disabilities. Shouldn't that be World Association Of Persons With disAbilities? No matter.

"We are focusing on abilities," he said Wednesday. "We want to project the images of these people who happen to be classified as disabled."

That's a good thing for Ms. Lee, who focused on her ability to stand on her own two feet and got herself in hot water.

Her first jobs as Miss disAbility International are to put together a Web site and arrange speaking engagements, she said.

As long as she does it sitting down.
