just an interesting, bbc related pbservation

I do not have much to blog about tonight, other than quite an interesting observation. I have been watching quite a bit of the bbc news channel recently, and I noticed today that at least two of their correspondents have a disability. Not just underlings either: their foremost military consultant, who they call on to speak on subjects like Afghanistan and Iraq, is a wheelchair user, and one of their foremost commentators on politics is blind. These are not just minor correspondents, but seem very much foregrounded in the BBC news. This is surely just another example of the beeb leading the way.
