    Whats next?

    New cars for the blind?
    Maybe 'strip joints' for the blind?
    CD music for the deaf?

    Many schools are toying with the idea of Kindles. Little kids are carrying around their body weight in books. Give me a fucking break.

    This doesn't make any sense to me at all.

    The kindle would be replacing printed text books, which blind people can't read anyway.

    It's not like they'd be any worse off if the sighted students switched to using the kindle.

    Maybe the justice dept. should just poking everyone's eyes out in the interest of "fairness" and all...

    Anyone read Harrison Bergeron? Scary.

    I think our country has gone nuts. We won't let sighted students use the Kindle in college. We won't protect our borders. We warn Americans not to use certain national parks because illegals have made them dangerous....we build public apartments that are only available to Russians, not Americans....I'm at a loss....we really need that revolution.

    The school I'm on the school board of starts our pilot program next week when school starts. I spearheaded a drive to convert to laptops, 9-12 grade we have no paper books. Everything is digital. If it seems to work we'll expand to the other grades.
