Egalitarianism Run Amok . . .

Earlier today, I was looking over some old files, and I happened upon a bit of nonsense that I took down about a decade ago.  Would you believe that Disney's 1997 Mr. Magoo has this disclaimer at the end?

The preceding film is not intended as an accurate portrayal of blindness or poor eyesight. Blindness or poor eyesight does not imply an impairment of one's ability to be employed in a wide range of jobs, raise a family, perform important civic duties or engage in a well-rounded life.

All people with disabilities deserve a fair chance to live and work without being impeded by prejudice.

Happening on the old file, I wasn't sure if I was reading an actual quote or a satire. I found confirmation elsewhere in the blogosphere.   Apparently, it's real.
