Well there may be an interesting podcast if you discussed the advantages and
disadvantages of schools for the blind, and likewise, advantages and/or
disadvantages of mainstreaming!

Actually, due to the fact that I do not want to lose subscribers, I have decided not to do a school for the blind podcast. Plus, I was having a lot of problems last night with my technology. Today, I talk about WinTrans and AOL Music. Check it out.

until June of 1960. I felt that my schooling there was useful, although I
lived in Lansing, where the school used to be, and I lived only eight blocks
from school. A cab took me back and forth to school up to the 10th grade.
When I was in the 11th grade, I walked back and forth to school for a while.
