I was going to go for a big song and dance about this, but Aaron told me to “chill out.” Aaron who? Aaron Prevost, a blind teen who fixes cars (and drove a Porsche on a racetrack).

If you like, you can read about Aaron in this edition of Wheels. Aaron will have someone read it to him.

Aaron confirmed (via Facebook, using Jaws) that he uses Jaws. He didn’t actually confirm he used it to read his own coverage, but it stands to reason.

The writer of the articles, Lorraine Sommerfeld, kept dodging the question of why she assumed a boy who can fix cars is somehow like Helen Keller and needs sighted help to read a newspaper.
