  •  I don't think I've ever heard of a Presidential (16+ / 0-)

    campaign (or any political campaign at all for that matter) reaching out to the deaf/hearing impaired community.

    How absolutely fantastic!

    On my Dad's side of the family there is a genetic trait where sometimes kids are born without ear drums and my brother was unfortunately one of those kids, so while I might not be deaf myself; I know intimately just how often those that are deaf and hearing impaired are left out and forgotten.

    My brother is going to be so pleased when I tell him about this... Thanks for sharing this Slink. I might have missed it if it weren't for you.
