RE: Defugalty

Jim, please send Ms. Fatma our regards for a complete recovery and a speedy
resolution to the whole wrecked car situation.  No matter what, it is NOT a
fun situation.  With Ms. Fatma's height, the airbag can be a true detriment,
though we have trouble finding anyone here in Dayton who will disconnect
one.   It is my understanding that people of our stature should have the
things disconnected or have a switch placed on them to be able to switch
them off for those of us vertically challenged.  How is Ms. Fatma feeling

Kitty, you might want to check to see whether there is someone in Ft. Wayne
who will do that sort of thing for you with your car, especially with your
disk problem.  I imagine a seat belt would be a better solution by itself.

Air bags definitely can be lifesavers, but they do scare me.  I have bad
disks in my neck that don't bother me for the most part.  I asked the dr
what things I should avoid so I don't make matters worse.  He said just not
to turn my head too quickly.  With airbags I don't think I'd have much
choice in the matter and might end up paralyzed.
