Charles made a sharp observation the other day. We were at a benefit concert that featured a sign language interpreter for the hearing impaired. As Boyz II Men were performing, I leaned over and asked Charles if he could make out the lyrics. Charles — who knows a lot of lyrics but not these — thought about it for a minute, pondered the irony, and replied, “Only the deaf people in the audience know what they’re singing.”
And that got me to thinking about signing and the ability to read lips.
And that got me thinking about politics. (These days, everything gets me thinking about politics.)
Quote of the Day
To think that distasters only happen to someone else is human nature. But, when human nature runs into mother nature, regret normally follows.~CBS hurricane specialist Bryan Norcross
