    o dont be so hasty...if its a gallery of touch and feel why not? ask yourself why a blind person wouldnt like art that is geared to thier senses or lack of?

    I guess that my plans to launch the Maine Ochestra for the Deaf probably won't fly, either, then.

    Seems a shame, too, given that I could have employed truly crappy musicians so cheaply.

    Hey! before you complain about what a bad idea that is, remember that crappy musicians need to work, too.

    I once climbed like six stairs in a tower to enjoy the view. In front of the window there was a map, identifying landmarks. There was also a plate in braille. Don't know what it said. But having a blind person climbing six stairs just to tell them what they would have seen if they could see... it seems cruel.

    Well if people didn't vote so often based on how much earmarks they're congressperson is bringing in, we wouldn't have this problem. Both sides of the aisle do it constantly. They all want to supposedly cut earmarks, except their own.
