  1. I had the FIRST scoop of the “21th Century Video and Internet Accessibility Act” before anyone on the DeafRead. I had to write the average English language level on my blog postings so everyone deaf from grassroot deaf to college-educated deaf could appreciate my newsreportings.

    The submittance of CiNet article is surely appreciated in many ways, Bill. 🙂

    I did not bring the legal notebooks to the congressional hearing as I should done it in the first place. I overlooked many details what covered on the CiNet online blog. Thanks again.
