They got it half right.
This week the Suncheon News called attention to the handicapped parking spots at Suncheon Bay's Eco Museum. The gravel path leading from the lot to the park outside the museum is blocked by a stone stump used to prevent motor vehicles from using it. Hopefully the newspaper just caught the museum with its pants down, since these parking spots are brand new, and I'm sure the museum will figure out a way to remove the barrier. But it's good to see people speaking up about wheelchair-friendliness and making sites more accessible for everyone. I have no idea if the museum has elevators or stairs inside, though.
The weekly cartoon was also used to draw attention to this situation, in a piece called "Yet another obstacle." Whoa, Get it? Draw attention? Cartoon? *cough*
