encouragement of Melinda Matthews. I would once again like to thank her for her tireless efforts in word processing
εαχη αννυαλ συππλεµεντ.
In preparing the Supplement on the landmark Americans With Disabilities Act, I was inspired by the activities of
certain women whom I admire. The chapter began as an effort to honor Jeanne, who, without fanfare or recompense,
works to soften the world faced by children with disabilities. It continued as a tribute to Jennifer, who literally emerged
from the darkness to claim the light. It was also intended as a salute to Kaitlin, who once used her exceptional athletic
skills to engage a single autistic boy. Finally, it was inspired by my goddaughter Katie, who always had to trade two

The second is my friend and law partner for a quarter century, the late Hartley T. Hansen. Although Hartley was
recognized as one of America’s finest attorneys, he always maintained his sense of humor and commitment to simple

humanity to the end. As I told him only minutes before he departed this life, I shall miss him every day.
