Overcoming adversity

Terrible, amusing gaff from a news anchor:
Homosexual climbs Mount Everest, despite handicap of being gay (embeded .wmv)
[transcript]

"After the break, we're gonna interview Eric Weihenmeir(?), who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest. But...he's gay! I mean, he's gay. Excuse me. He's blind.

So We'll hear about that."

[/transcript]

Reminds me of this article in the onion..
"He's the kind of guy you hope your kids will grow up to be like in certain ways, like courage."

Meanwhile, a guy with no legs has also climbed Mount Everest. Preliminary reports suggest that he is heterosexual, however.
