The good, the (possibly) bad and the ugly


I came across an interesting hodgepodge of articles related to power wheelchairs today.

The good: Check this out—a 63-year-old man with muscular dystrophy who volunteers at the Dallas Arboretum. Gardening in a wheelchair? It's not a problem for David Gary!

The (possibly) bad: Does the idea of a mainstream newspaper publishing an article that outlines how to get a power wheelchair paid for by Medicare creep anyone else out, especially when it has no apparent newspeg? Just a public service announcement?

The ugly: City, state and federal government officials continue to keep an eye on Texas, a "hotbed" for power wheelchair fraud.
