So Michael, if you used a wheelchair, would you disclose? And if 
so, what if they showed up with a car that your chair wouldn't 
fit in? Or that you couldn't get into because of it being too low 
to the ground, or something? What's the difference? The ADA says 
that transportation providers are supposed to not discriminate 
against people with wheelchairs, too.  In that situation, is it 
the fault of the person in the wheelchair if they don't disclose 
and the driver shows up in a tiny sports car, and your dog won't 
fit, even though the driver is willing.  Or your wheelchair 
doesn't fit.  I'm all for doing what is going to help strengthen 
the law, etc.  but I just don't think it's always very useful, or 
helpful to anybody at times.    Debby
