What is the latest status of Deaf Iran within the ongoing Iranian People Revolution backlashed against the current Iranian government and powerful Alloyahahs on the question of fair presidential election without getting tainted or corrupted.
Here is the link to Deaf Iranian, who happened to be deaf himself as an educator of the deaf after returned from the West. Many Iranian educators of the deaf supported the use of natural language. Yes, there are other educational methods like the Persian Cued Speech in Iran.
Deaf America proved itself to the entire world within the peaceful protest activities of "Unity for Gallaudet" (2006) and "Deaf President Now" (1988) by its demands for fair-minded process on the selection of new university president without any kind of corruption or bias.
Deaf Iran is in much uncertainity where the Deaf Iranians stand in the melee of the growing Iranian people backlash against the Iranian president, Adamanejeahiah.
Two recent summertime flicks with open captions like "UP" and "Land of the Lost" seems very hard to read very thin white captions on brighter film background. Don't you have a similar problem with open-captioned films lately?
What about parents of deaf children's hard-earned spendings on movie tixs undermined by poor quality of open captions?
Film viewing at the multiplex theatre ought to be non-stressful and non-frustrating experience for deaf youth moviegoers.
Why can't the distributors and caption typists simply do the usual yellow subtitles for many foreign films? So we could easily read the open captions on multiplex screens without any kind of eye strains and body tiltings. Don't you agree?
What could we do is to contact the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) and film distributors and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to address problematic issue of "difficult to read" open captions on brighter film background.

If any of you used to watch the original "Land of the Lost" Saturday morning tv programming on NBC. You ought to know that actor Wesley Eure recently admitted that he is totally gay himself and used to date actor Richard Chamberlian, another closeted gay actor until recent years ago.
Miami Herald newspaper reporter, Jose Atervois informally outed the signing deaf contestant of 'The Amazing Race", Luke Adams - http://miamiherald.typepad.com/gaysouthflorida/2009/05/aftereltoncom-interview-with-margie-and-luke-from-the-amazing-race.html
Or this reporter just made a speculation of Luke 's sexual preference? Is that really necessary to make such an assumption about someone deaf's sexuality or what?
That would be a non-issue to the Deaf America and other deaf people around the world.
ASLize yours, Robert L. Mason (RLM)
