Jim Schiffman: Don’t forget why disabled laws exist

My daughter was disabled 15 years ago and I write this with conflicting emotions. For store owners to suggest (“Taking a stand v. Taking advantage,” Aug. 24, 25, 31, Sept. 1) they thought they were “grandfathered in” is code for: “I don’t care to do the right thing.” I find it ironic not one of the store owners pictured with the articles are disabled; if they were, their businesses would be compliant. Clothing stores are especially bad for this; my daughter couldn’t maneuver her chair through the aisles to look at clothes. The stores sometimes would move them for us but then put them back.
