Well, if I ever wondered what the key to increased readership was, I discovered it last night when I fired off a hasty post about Jane's getting the boot. Nothing like an inflammatory headline to draw readers! My usual readership includes my two oldest daughters, my oldest grandson's wife, Susan-my-dear-niece, and occasional others...Mad Cabbie, Helen of Troy, and Squeaky Days drop in every once in a while...maybe it receives a grand total of 7 or 8 visits in all per day. (I have many other dear nieces, too, but they don't read or even know about my blog.) I had 177 visitors for November 30th alone by this morning at 7:30 a.m.!! Some of them left comments, most of them did not.
But to repeat: I still feel that Jane Fernandes is one of the century's great deaf women, and that she has been much maligned here. I've known her for a long time, and I've always admired her. There are other people besides me on campus here who are broken-hearted over the turn of events regarding Jane. Some very fine people supported Jane, and other very fine people did not. One of the comments on my early blog said "You lost!!!" I think they lost, too, but many of them don't know it yet.
