    What future legal client (or medical patient) would seek help from a lawyer (or doctor) who, for whatever reasons, can't read, think and act under pressure as quickly and efficiently as other lawyers (or doctors)? Our politically correct world has truly gone mad when we're bending over backwards to encourage young people with serious disabilities to take on crippling law school debt and then almost surely fail to find meaningful, much less profitable, work as a lawyer thereafter -- simply so we can feel good about ourselves as "anti-discrimination champions" of "diversity."
