On the Spectrum #70: The Pepsi Challenge

Wise guy.

It's OT, but I wanted to let everyone know about a wonderful movie we saw over the weekend called Music Within.  It's about the life's story of Richard Pimentell, a Vietnam Vet who lost his hearing and became an advocate for the disabled.  He wrote Tilting at Windmills, which became one of the earliest blueprints for diversity and jobs training for companies to hire, train and work with disabled people.  Really interesting story, and a really moving and FUNNY movie.  I highly recommend everyone see it.

This reminds me so much of my son! I told my mom I think he may be a future lawyer - he's already so adept at renegotiating. :o)
