"All Press Releases via sign language---viewers assumed to be Deaf": Tales From Normal, Mn.: FICTION
Just got the text today from Normal, Mn that commented on the SNL skit which featured the sign language person who starred recently in New York with Mayor Bloomberg---the press release noted that for the past five years, all press presentations in Normal, Mn. have been Sign Language since it is assumed that all the viewers are DEAF. It appears that most of the audience is either DEAF or in DENIAL and the only way messages can properly be processed is if Sign Language is used...and it is harder to twitter the messages too. Signing slows down the transmission so that folks can truly understand the message...something unusual in modern life. Stay tuned as I follow this story.
