Humiliation Education

TO THE EDITORS OF THE CRIMSON:

After reading about Rudd W. Coffey's homeless exploits, I ran right out and borrowed a wheelchair from University Health Services and sat in it for about two hours. It was a demeaning experience. First of all, it's almost impossible to get around in all this snow and people wouldn't help me; they looked right through me as if I weren't there. Plus, it's impossible to eat lunch at Quincy House--too many stairs. I had to get out and walk up them. I learned from the humiliation I had to go through, the loss of self-respect. A lot of people have no legs and it's really terrible. Do you think maybe the Undergraduate Council could do something about it?
