An article in Disability Scoop by Michelle Diament about how the US Justice Department had people monitoring disability access at polling centers across the US during yesterday's election.  The statistic that 1 in 5 voters with disabilities were prevented from voting independently in the 2012 election is ridiculous.  It will be interesting to hear feedback  on how this election went.Justice Department Monitoring Disability Access At PollsBy Michelle DiamentFederal officials are fanning out…See More

I am loving retirement.  I can't remember feeling so relaxed and "In control" before.  After a year of travel, reading, and generally enjoying life, I've started to do some consulting.  For the next six months I'm handling marketing and fund raising for Leadership Wisconsin.   I hope you can come to the conference in Green Bay April 24-25: conference.leadershipwisconsin.org  I never want to work full time again, but it's fun to do enough to keep in the loop and see colleagues.  If you hear of anyone who needs a writer/editor/speaker/trainer/baker, let me know.
