Ditching the r-word

Happy to see this is happening. We worked this out in Saskatchewan a long time ago, and glad to see it’s spreading. Wish it would happen faster, along with the understanding as to why it’s important, but hey! It’s happening! Ran into a nice elderly man the other day where we go to work out; he was so impressed that Jim was with us. Said he knew of a business that hired ‘mongoloids.’ Eww. Ouch. Okay, I guess we should go back and get rid of the M-word, too. A nice opportunity, though, to calmly talk about why that term is a teeny tiny bit offensive.
