I write this in total support of Betty Jean Cozzene-Knudsen (Readers' Forum, Oct. 14), whose comments were regarding handicapped parking stalls.
It does take months, if not years, to explain to strangers that, yes, we are handicapped and need those placards and parking spaces. I, too, have post-polio syndrome, among other things but, yes, give us a break. After all, we are not able to carry a sign explaining everything, besides the fact that "it's a private matter" anyway.
