What's wrong with this picture?

Not sure if I can remember everyone's names, here, I'll do my best. From left to right, Gentleman from National Organization on Disability; Michael Muehe, ADA coordinator, City of Cambridge; President, MIT; Nancy Starnes, national Organization on Disability, all seated, and standing mayor Ken Reeves. This is my photo of the Mayor of Cambridge accepting the $25, 000 "prize" for winning NOD's Accessible America grand prize award in a special ceremony held in Sullivan Chambers, City Council meetings are held there, on June 12, 2006. We have asked to see, but have not been shown, application the City submitted for this award, which says that the City of Cambridge if the most accessible City in America, and should serve as a model for other cities.


Members and supporters of the disability advocasy group I founded, Citizens for Feasable Compliance, wore question marks to the ceremony, and passed out our press release.

Here is my question to you, and please feel free to answer...

Nothing. I've seen the application and was truly impressed.

The award was not for the most accessible city in America; it was for the most disability-friendly city, based upon things such as programs and initiatives to help people with disabilities. Cambridge promotes accessibility by pointing out how it is about smart business sense and community involvement, not just the difference between twelve and fourteen inches. You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
