Top stories about the deaf:

Zheng Xuan, who is deaf, has been pushing for
respect in linguistic research into Chinese sign
language, a field dominated by hearing people
that claim to be sign language experts.

………..

A public display garden in Costantia, a suburb of
Cape Town in South Africa, was razed and destroyed
much to the dismay of residents. The landscape
architect was Ann Sutton. She was deaf.

……….

Texas School for the Deaf has been working with
a local pharmacy to provide Covid-19 shots.
This is said to be unique Deaf community service.

…………….

A school district is worried. The high school in
that district will start ASL courses, but the
big question among the administrators is:

do we have enough teachers?

………………

The Deaf West Theatre has withdrawn from the
LA Stage Alliance because its request for
ASL interpreter or captions was ignored.

IS ADA STRONG OR WEAK?
Is ADA strong or weak? ADA is 20 years old but
we are always having problems. Almost every week we
read in newspapers about lawsuits against doctors
and hospitals. They would not give us interpreters.
ADA is very strong if hearing people have strong
attitude and want to help the deaf. ADA is very
weak if hearing people have bad attitudes about us.
ADA strong or weak? You decide!

UNION STATION IN WASHINGTON, DC
Union Station is not too far from Gallaudet
University.
This station has a lot of history. Many years ago
Gallaudet students went to the Union Station to take
the trains back to their home towns. There were always
many Gallaudet students at Union Station greeting
each other for the fall semester, and saying farewell
after the spring semester.
Times have changed. Students either fly or drive.
But many deaf people still go to Union Station – because
it has a big Food Court and students always get tired
of college food!
