The Nebraska prison system has been slapped with a
lawsuit, alleging lack of accommodations for
deaf inmates. The problem is not that wardens
wish to refuse accommodations, but that the
state prisons are so overcrowded, making

— deaf-blind owner of a cross-fit gym

Brandon Tucker is deaf-blind. He is the owner of
his cross-fit gym – CrossFit Feliciana, located
in Saint Francisville, Louisiana. There was a
newspaper story about him – he probably
functions as a hearing person, despite his
profound deafness.


— a fishy excuse

DeafDigest mentioned that a deaf man was refused
service at a Burger King drive-in in Columbus,
Ohio. The server who refused him service (and
lost his job for that reason) said:

We didn’t know you were deaf

It is fishy because the deaf driver handed him
his burger order on a piece of paper and it
was refused. Would a hearing driver write
down his order on a piece of paper at a
drive-in window?
