Breathlessly Publishing

This week's edition of CityBeat didn't come easily. The elevator serving CityBeat World Headquarters is undergoing repairs, so the staff has had to trudge up and down the stairs to get to our offices. The editorial department is on the sixth floor, which involves 109 steps each way. It's my nature to grumble and complain about this sort of thing, especially because it makes it inconvenient for me to smoke cigarettes outside. But after seeing Geoff Raker, a production artist, climb five flights of stairs to get to his work area, I had to shut up. He traversed the stairs on crutches.

  • What a dedicated employee Geoff is...oh how does he do it? I think it's the mountain dew and pringles that give him strength.
    Hip Hip Hooray for Geoff's endurance and dedication.

  • The tenacity of humankind always amazes.

    I've been on the "using side" of mobility devices for over a year, and I'm awed that Geoff can use crutches so well.

  • And likely now has a phenomenal reason to sue you for failure to accomodate the disabled.

    Great going, City Beat!
