    I had recorded 24 last night and was watching it and in the first hour when they were talking about evacuating a building and who had not left, they said a women on the second floor is handicapped and had probably not left because she couldn't.

    If you were able to read her computer screen while she said this it said "disability access only, due to comp(the rest of the sentence was cut off) severe fibromyalgia. Movement is limited."

    I thought it was interesting they picked fibro as her disability. If you have it recorded it is right around the 43rd minute.

    I don't think it will help further awareness, but maybe it shows that it is on peoples radar as a disabling illness.

    I saw that too!! It was only there for a few seconds but I hope LOTS of viewers saw it. Gives FM a small bit of legitimacy that is sadly lacking.
