It's also gotten a lot easier, I mean, tremendously easier, to access the world. The changes that I have seen from 1984 to 2010 have been wonderful. They're never quite enough, of course, but I can go to almost any motel or hotel, and there are accessible rooms, and many of those rooms now in motels have roll-in showers; there are curb cuts, there are buses. I went to the national parks, and they are wonderfully accessible. Now much of this has been because, of course, we passed the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act, which is the civil rights law for people with disabilities. In this country, I expect theaters, and movie houses to be accessible, and I expect to be accommodated.
