— anti-deaf incident at a bar

A deaf woman and her three hearing friends entered
a Pittsburgh bar. All four of them ordered drinks.

There is a sad piece of Deaf History in Rome
that very few deaf people know about. Not
Rome, Italy, but Rome, New York. A deaf

This restaurant was considered to be the

a shopping mall would be much better than
these downtown stores, and agreed to have
it demolished. As a result, the downtown
deaf-owned restaurant was wiped out.
