"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."

Some activists for disabled people use an acronym - "TAB" - to refer to normal people. The letters stand for "Temporarily Able-Bodied," as a reminder that any normal healthy person is only an illness or accident away from disability. The term has been around for years, but the current Olympics has offered some striking reminders of the validity of the acronym.
