I was watching Fringe Season 4 on DVD w/ Mrs.NMERider when a friend called to say there was this mini-documentary on LA Channel 4 NBC about a paralyzed former hang glider pilot. It's a short piece and please excuse the loud commercial that NBC4 force you to listen to before their Flash media player presents a volume control.
That's a great piece on John Johnson. The power and will to accept and forge ahead.
