  He doesn't define himself by his disability. Why should writers?
Inclusion Daily Express

I found an interesting story related to the Clark v. Arizona case. The Arizona Republic did a cover story last week on Randall Howe, the state's attorney who argued the case before the U.S Supreme Court.

It turns out Howe has cerebral palsy. The article makes a big point of this fact, while explaining over and over that Howe does not define himself by his disability -- even noting at one point that "he won't let you do it either".

Yet, that's exactly what the article appears to be doing.

What do you think?
