Tue Jun 06 2000 - 08:33:18 CDT
In my posting yesterday I recommended that you view "King Gimp" on HBO.
It won the Academy Award for the Best Short (45min.) Documentary for
"King Gimp" is about the life (thus far) of Dan Keplinger, an
accomplished artist and person.
Dan, you'll see, was a Scout in Troop 475 of the Baltimore Area
Council. "King Gimp" isn't exactly "Follow Me Boys", it's better - and
Dan went to the Ridge School, Parkville High School, and is a graduate
of Towson State University.
Dan skis at the White Tail Resort. Dan has Cerebral Palsy, and uses a
paint brushes and a wheelchair.
