NPR's Neda Ulaby has a profile of painter Dan Keplinger. Keplinger has cerebral palsy and was featured in the 1999 Oscar-winning documentary short, King Gimp. Although it's difficult for him to control his movements or speak, he's had several successful shows in New York, and he's completing his second college degree at Towson State University, Md.
