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
Capital is dead labor, which, vampire-like, lives only by sucking living labor, and lives the more, the more labor it sucks. --Karl Marx Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed. -- Gandhi~Gandhi
