When did I say that I wouldn't assist him in getting a job? What would
make it easier for me to assist him in finding a job is if he had a
college education. If he couldn't get a job because of insufficient
education, then why am I at fault? Being handicapped makes it more
difficult, but not impossible.
And yes, my understanding of ADD is very limited. But that doesn't mean
that you can't get an education. I see people with handicaps at the
school all the time. I even do project work with someone who is hearing
impaired...she seems to be learning very well despite her handicap.
As for your father...don't blame me for his doings. You know nothing of
me, and I of you. I'm not making a judgement about you and calling you
all kinds of names...grow up.

Yes...you told me you did, and that you didn't have the attention to sit
in class for 8 hours a day. I fail to see how your being in a wheel chair
and having a short attention span are related.
As for the failure part...I don't know what caused you to fail, but just
because you did, doesn't mean you shouldn't try harder next time. With
your being handicapped, you should (and here's some ignorance on my part
with respect to ADD) have some kind of aid to help you learn a skill. If
you can sit in front of a computer and send insulting e-mail to me, then
you shouldn't have any problem programming (if that is what you'd like to
I cannot relate to being handicapped...and if there was something I could
do to get you out of your wheelchair, I would. But don't go around pissed
off at the world for your situation...try and make the best of it.

Microsoft is living proof that a sales talent is vastly more useful in a
capitalist society than intelligence. A person with an IQ of 1,000 could
die destitute, but a cretin with a sales talent can become a billionaire
