    some folks around here call you a troll, a rightwinger, or tell you to go to red state. i have to deliver bad news to people all day so i am used to denial. People, for example, will not admit their child is learning disabled. They will attack my data, demand second opinions, and try feingold and gluten free and lactose free diets and all manner of horseshit before they come to the conclusion that the kid is disabled, then they want to blame the school for having not acted fast enough. I have looked parents in the eye and told them, in no uncertain terms, that cognitively impaired means retarded. Then they say they want their kid in mainstream classes so he doesn't fall further behind. They can't accept the kid is behind, and will stay behind. They do not believe me.
