- Hi Keith,
I'm not sure, but I think it has more to do with where IDE readers live and
what interests them, since the list was selected by readers. (I told them
they had to decide for themselves what made a story a "top" story.)
For whatever reason, those who voted for the top stories did not vote for
the ones I had listed from the United Kingdom, Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan,
Belgium, Canada, and New Zealand. I thought they were important stories, but
my readers chose differently.
I do make it a point for Inclusion Daily Express to be international in

almost 40 percent of the stories I include come from outside the US.
Last month alone, that included 236 stories or links to stories from
Afghanistan, Angola, Antigua, Australia, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados,
Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Ghana, India, Iraq, Ireland, Isreal, Italy,
Jamaica, Japan, Malawi, Malaysia, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan,
Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan,
Thailand, Tunisia, Uganda and United Kingdom -- and a total of 404 from the
Take a look for yourself and you be the judge:

do only three come from outside of the United States?
Is'nt more to do with your readings than the world and disability rights?
