Chimps

Commentator Stephen Kuusisto is a blind writer who was recently invited by a primate researcher to visit with a pair of young chimpanzees. The chimps, a boy and a girl, each about a year old, took instantly to the man with the white cane. They allowed him to touch and play with them, and he in turn allowed them to climb and jump from his cane. The experience has changed the way he feels about his cane.
