Say what you will about conservatives, I have to give credit where credit is due. In some ways the conservative movement is ahead of their liberal neighbors. One indicator of that is their concern for the less fortunate, specifically the mentally retarded.

Recently the administration put into place a plan to give jobs to those less gifted souls, making room for them in the U.S. Military.

Last week noted conservative Dr. Patricia Doyle, realizing that not all the mentally retarded would be able or willing to serve in uniform proposed a bold new plan to employ even more. In her own words:

"How about using people that are mildly retarded, who people do not wish to hire, and who are really just sitting in workshops stuffing cotton into bottles and the other group's taking cotton out of bottles?" She added, "Let's put them to work picking. They would love that."

Do people care? People do.
