Can't they use closed captioning instead of those sign language assholes?

    They look rediculous and they bother me. I can't watch.

    And why do Governors wear sweaters and jeans when they address the hurricane? Are we supposed to believe they're going out to cut down trees?

    It depends on how long the delay is.

    Shouldn't all deaf people have closed caption on their TVs by now? Why do they need some creep standing there flapping their arms around like a loon?

    While I'm bitching, I don't like the new photobucket. They should have left it alone instead of trying to be all cute with the new features that make it run like shit. Facebook too.

    Meanwhile the poor guy who types the captions just got his walking papers and lost his house.

    I was thinking the same thing last night during Bloomberg's press conference. There was an Asian woman signing right next to him.


    [h=1]Hurricane Sandy’s Breakout Star: Mayor Bloomberg’s Sign Language Interpreter[/h]

    [​IMG]

    As serious as this storm is, Michael Bloomberg's frequent press conferences have also provided New Yorkers a legitimate reason to smile: Her name is Lydia Callis*, and she's the mayor's official sign language interpreter, translating live on air as he delivers the latest news on Hurricane Sandy. Unlike Bloomberg's own stilted Spanish, another highlight of the updates, Callis's signing is both lightning-fast and emotive, her animated face lighting up and contorting happily as she goes, not unlike a guitarist during a blistering solo. Callis already has quite the online fan club.


    Even JD Harmeyer tweeted about her.

    You can go back to the old style Photobucket if you want to. I did.
