      It has always bugged me when people mention "the good old days." Not saying that you ever had, but I tend to look at where we have come from in terms of race relations, women rights, and the treatment of those with disabilities – the the good old days really weren't that good in that regard.

      Here's the original post that accompanies the book:

      As you can see, it was published in 1975. A library should no longer be carrying such an outdated book in my opinion, especially since that is no longer an acceptable way to refer to those with special needs.
