So, before we left work for the holidays I took the opportunity to clean up my desk area a little. Because in all the insanity of last week, it looked like someone had barfed paper all over my desk and sprinkled it with empty food containers. And I’m rearranging the stack of rolled technical drawings that I keep between my desk and the wall when I come across this:
For those of you who are unsure of what you’re looking at, I’ll save you the squinting: it’s an original hand-drafting of my theatre’s audience seating from back when the space opened in the early 70’s. So I’m sitting there, admiring the tedious and detailed hand-drafting, when I notice something on the drawing that cause my jaw to drop.
It was their rendering of the handicap section.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you’re reading that correctly. The handicap section is labeled “Paraplegic Section.”
The 70’s were so politically correct…
