Ridor's New Blog!

Handful of DeafRead readers and viewers keep asking about Ricky Taylor aka Ridor's latest blog postings so far.

You could find the truly controversial deaf blogger in America - Ricky Taylor aka Ridor which his blog re-titled "Deaf, Gay & Angry This Time, It Is Personal! ". Let me hold for a moment to explain how come Ridor's blog title now is "Deaf, Gay & Angry".

Don't you remember last two years' local Southeast Virginia weekend magazine done the feature story on Ricky Taylor aka Ridor. Its feature article titled - "Deaf, Gay & Angry". You could read more on Ridor's new blog site.

Ricky Taylor aka Ridor done the FIRST e-news scoops on the FBI investigation of VRS companies before anyone else on the DeafRead! I personally knew about the occurrence of
FBI raids upon several VRS companies last two and half weeks ago, but not able to confirm the independent reporting. I notified one particular individual which ended up sending out the unconfirmed news reporting. That very same particular individual enclosed the Gazettee article on the FBI raid upon the Viable, Inc. Other deaf blogger did not give any credits to Brian
Riley for enclosing the Gazette article about the FBI visit to the Viable, Inc. Real shame on these
deaf blogger like Steve aka the Deaf Sherlock and others make a habit of posting anything from Brian Riley's "SODS" e-news distributions and acted like that they found articles on their own.

Ricky Taylor aka Ridor still do the well-written blog entries as he always do! Ridor seems more
careful and pragmatic when come to the blog writing. Ridor write several interesting blog entries. Ridor seems more tactful with his current blog writings.

Enuff about "beating the bush" on the whereabouts of Ridor's new blog site! Here is and click on the Blogs and find "R" or "Deaf, Gay and Angry" blog. Enjoy
Ridor's new blog entries! D'accord?

ASLize yours,

  1. I told Steve last year to feel free and go ahead and pass along information on his blog without crediting me. There's no problem there.

  2. Some people know how to read the newspapers and find out on their own and submit on their own before finding out about others. I'm sure Brian Riley agrees.

    Re: Friday Update

    It is my pleasure to recap the 4:30p announcement made by the executive management team to Rockville employees, call center managers and the manager of the national support team:


    Everyone will be paid. Our funder has committed to moving forward and taking the steps necessary to infuse Viable with the cash that will allow us to meet our payroll and other immediate obligations. We are enormously grateful to them for working with us at a breakneck pace and finalizing an agreement within 10 days that normally takes months. We are also grateful to every one of you at Viable for the commitment you have shown to our customers and the faith you have placed in us.

    However, how exactly financing will move forward is entirely in the hands of our funder and the banking process, and we cannot pinpoint which day next week the funds will come in. We also anticipate 48 hours between receipt of funds and disbursement, and we realize this also raises the question of whether you will be paid your wages due July 17 and July 31 with one check or two checks. You have our pledge that we will work to finalize all this information as early next week as possible.


    I would also like to take this opportunity to inform everyone that our health insurance coverage is temporarily lapsed (dating back to July 1) because we were unable to pay our premium by its due date. However, we have finalized an agreement with our insurer and our coverage will be reinstated retroactive to July 1 once we pay our premium and you should not be concerned if you receive notice on any medical claims. The immediate reinstatement of your health insurance policy takes the same high priority as your paychecks and we expect to resolve this next week.

    In meanwhile, executive management wants you to have the weekend with assurance that you will be paid in full for the wages you are owed, that your benefits will remain intact, and that Viable remains with a future of stellar service to the deaf and hard of hearing community.

    We deeply appreciate your understanding and would like to thank everyone and their families for their patience.
