First off, I had an e-mail that said that we should NOT vote for John McCain because of his past involvement on I. King Jordan's Board of Trustees of Gallaudet University.
To be honest to say this: I wish John McCain would explain his own actions about WHY he supported every decision that was approved and guided by I. King Jordan "for" the Gallaudet University campus. It would have been a very helpful thing if John McCain had broken away from the BOTS and explained away every action that the GU BOTS and Jordan had done. That would have gotten him the very support he would get from the Deaf and Hard of hearing community. But unfortunately, his own actions of what he's done, including withdrawing AFTER the fall-out leads that he's not a Presidential candidate that cares for the very minority community: the disabled community.
John McCain may be one of the political candidates, but I would NOT even consider throwing support for him. If he had been honest with all of us, then we'd be happy.
Meanwhile,in my hometown of my beloved Williamsport, PA, I have good news for ANYONE that's driving up from Gallaudet to RIT/NTID area on Route 15. The NEW market street bridge is finally completed! Though it's been open for a few months, the construction company was ahead of schedule. So they're just in the wrap up process right now. Also, anyone driving up on Route 15 north (near the NY border area) is advised to take caution as there will be several construction projects going on as well. Penn DOT is trying to bring certain parts of the Route 15 area from a former two lane country road and rebuild it into INTERSTATE standards route.
also, be advised (again) that parts of route 15 will soon be renamed into the future route I-99 road. Don't forget, do not speed in a construction zone in PA! The fines are HIGHER than you think and the points on your driver's license is more than you can handle! OK?
Have a semper FI day!
