Even CNN Starts to Get Universal Design

Although the article title makes disability or aging the villain ( Don't Let Disability or Old Age Rob You of a Stylish Home) rather than generations of architecturally encoded socal exclusion, it is encouraging to see further mainstreaming of UD:

•Universal design helps homeowners live in their houses for longer periods of time

• CDC: More than 12,000 people died of injuries related to falls in the home in '02

• Design can make living spaces more livable for those with, without disabilities
