SO campaign to end pejorative use of "retard" and "retarded"

Special Olympics International launches a campaign today (31st March in the US) to end the use of the words "retard" and "retarded" as insults, and making people with intellectual disabilities the butt of often thoughtless "jokes". John C McGinley, the actor who is the father of a son who has Down Syndrome, and an ambassador for the National Down Syndrome Society makes the case here.
