Gary Walker is the name of the guy I flagged for you on Tuesday as the cell-phone thief done in by having snapped a downloadable picture of himself with "his" new phone. Turns out he has at least six other warrants outstanding, including shoplifting from a blind merchant. It appears that he's moved along the chain because the cell phone he took was from a deaf woman. Problem: A deaf person can see, and she ID'd him from the photo he snapped. Cincinnati Enquirer

Ok, if she's deaf, how does she use a cell phone?

When an old friend visits my parents, he texts them the whole time, b/c my parents don't know sign. Also, he can use the relay service from his phone. And he CAN if he had to call 911 or something...he could say he is deaf and has an emergency.

Yet another person who could have used my latest book "A Guide to Normalcy for Advanced Idiots"

KW, I had the same thought for a few seconds. Just can't, quite, get my head around all this new fangled technocrap that's out there today.

I saw the movie Babel recently. There's a deaf Japanese girl who uses a video phone function on her cell phone to talk with friends. I imagine there may be phones capable of that in the US, too....
