The Columbia County courthouse in Hudson, N.Y., finally has  a handicapped-accessible water fountain!

The fountain was installed after a now 7-year-old report noted deficiencies under the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act.

“We’re doing that for every building,” promises Public Works Commissioner David Robinson. “We want to satisfy the settlement agreement.”

The new fountain may not fully satisfy the  law, however: it’s on the courthouse’s second floor, which is accessible only by stairs. (Hudson Register-Star) …

A THOUGHT: By the time someone gets to the top of the stairs in a wheelchair, they’re really gonna need more than a drink!

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
