I get more upbeat stuff nationally from the Christian Science Monitor weekly than from any other paper I see. A piece about hiring disabled folks is a case in point.

The latest issue carries the story of Walgreens, which since 2007 has had a policy of hiring disabled folks at its distribution centers. At least a quarter of their distribution center employees are disabled, the report says, and the results are positive, with lower absenteeism, less turnover, and better safety records.
