— changing town name from Franklin to Whoville

Franklin, NC is a town of 3,800 people. For the holidays
the town name was changed to Whoville. The suggestion
for the temorary name change came from a young student.
He is deaf, and his love for Christmas was the reason
for the name change!


— The Deaf Economic Power

A newspaper headline said:

Americans with disabilities have $200 billion in
spending power

What this means is that deaf people, as a bloc, is
very much part of the economic spending power.
This being said, businesses that discriminate
against the deaf hurts them in the wallet!


— deafness and 20 other disabled groups

A government group in Asia identified 21 separate,
and different disabled groups. One of these is
deafness. What this means is that there are more
people with other disabilities than deafness.
