Gadget Lab, part of Wired Blogs, has a post up today that actually uses the word "tard", in fact it uses it many times.
Please feel free to comment on the post and voice your objections. Feel free to let the folks at Wired know too. In addition maybe you want to e-mail the author of the post.
You might want to demand an apology. You might want to demand that Gadget Lab do some stories on assistive tech and cognitive disabilities. You might just want express your dismay and horror at how pathetic and painful their word choice is. Whatever you choose I hope you use your voice.
