Hi all,<smiling> George, no of course it wouldn't be funny if it really had happened. No, this was a spoof, a funny essay or lark written to point up the problems blind people have with cans and boxes which aren't labeled in braille or in any other intelligible way. No, I'm not advocating destruction of property, not at all. This bit of hyperbole was written and posted on Blind Kiss some time back, and it was funny precisely because it was so exaggerated and so outrageous that it would never have happened in a million years. Yet its purpose was serious in that it was written to underscore the problems we have with printed material. I guess I didn't explain that well. It was written in the Robin Hood mind set, and it had just enough hijinx to make it extremely funny. In fact, it was so well written that even the image of all these blind people whooping and hollering and ripping off the labels on cans just makes me smile. I can't help it! I guess maybe I am, as they say in some quarters "slightly tetched.".
