Yes I agree, you shouldn't have a hidden agenda. I mean, if you're not proud of who you are, then you know, I guess that is a problem, isn't it? Anyway, I'll speak to all of you later.

> I do wonder about folks who do practice to decieve. In your message Joe, the woman had no disability and therefor shouldn't be so raving mad. If it was a job for her and her wheelchair husband couldn't come visit, well, that's her probblem! My wife uses a chair and my daughter is deaf. But if it means making money, well, maybe they shouldn't be able to come to the job sitee! However, if I did get the job that doesn't mean that I wouldn't work for accessibility within the job site. Also, I don't believe that I should hide the fact that I am blind but sometimes if I think it won't get me in the door I don't mention it. Two quick examples of this were at Eastern Michigan University. I took a lot of biology classes there with labs included. My practice was to sign up for the classes and then try to meet with the proffessor before attending. When I took embryology, I did this and my proffessor let me in. He was very scepitcal but he let me in anyway. I did very well and was invited to take his masters level course. So, I did it again! I signed up for an entomology class. I met with the instructor and he told me there was no way! I was horrified! "Well, I talked with him and it would have been very difficult. Sence a lot of the work used a microscope. I had used those things with an assistant before but I had models and such that I could also have used in those classes. I did aggree not to take the class becaus of the extreme difficulty but the proffessor actually did know me and knew I was capable of many things. He felt that sence a lot of the work was independent, I couldn't do it. I did tell him it was possible but I opted to take that masters level developmental biology course instead. I did very well in that thing as well! I guess the point is that everyone is different and that if you apply for a job or anything else with a hidden agenda, don't be surprised if it gets called out. And if it does you should be able to explain yourself.
