DeafDigest – 26 July 2018

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – July 26, 2018

— rude or not rude

A hearing person said:
I love watching people sign to one another; I often watch people
have lightning-fast expressive conversations in American Sign

Is it OK or rude for a hearing person to spy on deaf that
communicate with each other? A picture is at:


— university president hiring the deaf

Jack Hawkins was the director of Alabama School for the
Deaf. In 1989 he accepted a job offer to become the
president of Troy University. He has not forgotten his
deaf roots; many of the landscape workers on the Troy
campus are deaf. Not too many other presidents would
do the same on behalf of the deaf!


— the only deaf person

A deaf man, who loves watching movies, said he often
was the only deaf person to watch an open captioned
movie at a theater. He was making a point, in that
deaf people demand open captions but do not show up
for these open captioned movies!
