Blog Comment from Terry Miller

Not related to any present discussion, however “Tiz the Season”, I’m perplexed by the extremely loud Music played at each establishment within a Mall, or such place; when a Blind person chooses to investigate a place of Business. This is of course to draw in, “sighted Customers”. What results is a cacophony of mixed “loud” Music that doesn’t allow an independent Blind person to navigate or (for that matter) to interact with the Proprietor of an individual Store. The Lighting is another matter; because, many “pop-culture” establishments like to hi lite their individual articles for sale, with neon, or black lighting. All this constitutes non-verbal transactions. Both of these issues are on the rise. What say you?

    I’ve been listening to your show for quite a while, and I really love both the range of subjects and the format. However, halfway through this show I couldn’t help but wonder what got into you. Why do you provide a platform for a person who apparently feels the need to insult every person who for whatever reason takes a more critical position to TapTap See’s latest move, apparently beleiving that anybody who disagrees with his ridiculously oversimplified interpretation of the criticism just has to be mentally ill.

    I find this sort of thing completely unacceptable. I’m not going to go into the underlying discussion, you covered a lot of it in the relevant podcast, but I would appreciate it if in the future I could listen to your show without becoming a target of the unreflected ragings of some Monday-morning-football-coach. In my opinion, mutual respect is essential in a public forum, and when you turn from people voicing their opinions to people raging at the rest of the world for not agreeing with their own point of view, then there’s not much point in listening any more. And at least for this episode I definitely lost my taste for it.
