Why some in Disability Community Are Not Happy with GLEE

For all those wondering why some in the disability community didn't fully appreciate the musical number and wheelchair-user's exposure on last night's Glee, here's a good article that explains why. 

I'm all for this valuable, prime-time exposure for special needs, and also for increased opportunities for employment for actors with disabilities.

Real progress will be realized when we recognize the value of doing both.
