"'Welcome to Estonia' is our slogan," says the City of Tallinn spokeswoman Sirje Sõber, "and that goes for the crippled, too." The City of Tallinn under the leadership of Mayor Edgar Savisaar recently vowed to make the entire city handicapped accessible and have placed wheelchair ramps (see photo) on many staircases in the city. "This is a bold step," said Sõber, "and it just shows Estonians do not discriminate. To us, gimps' money is as good as any other kind."
