THE FAMOUS BASKETBALL MOVIE – THE HOOSIERS
    The famous movie, the Hoosiers, was produced in 1986. It
is still the best basketball movie in Hollywood history.
    The character, Jimmy Chitwood, who scored the last second
basket to help his high school win the state championship,
was supposed to be deaf. It was part of the script. And
in fact, there was a brief conversation among the actors
during the filming that mentioned Chitwood’s deafness.
    Unfortunately, the film editors, cut out the
scene that mentioned Chitwood’s deafness!

A STUPID LANDLORD IN ENGLAND
    It happened few years ago. A hearing landlord refused to
rent an apartment to a deaf-blind man.
    The deaf-blind man sued, and won. It cost the landlord
three things:
–  to pay a lawyer in legal fees
–  to pay the deaf-blind man a lot of money for punishment
–  to allow deaf-blind man to live rent-free for rest of his life!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Thanksgiving is a special gathering to give thanks.
Thanks for the Native Americans for helping the new settlers
to survive in USA.
They taught them how to grow and harvest food.
I want to give thanks to the people who work with DeafBlind people.
Thank you to interpreters, SSPs, friends, family and many more
for their countless hours working for us.
Happy Thanksgiving
