Before anyone else can attack me outright on this -- congratulations to the Class of 2005.
I had been watching Gallaudet Commencement during the live webcast. It is nice, so nice, to have the captions when you cannot understand I. King Jordan's fingerspelling. Either he's bad fingerspeller or I'm getting old.
Andy Lange has a moustache. Who does he thinks he is? Tom Selleck? Andy, your moustache won't get women behind your wife's back!
Anyway, let's back to the list of people that I knew ... I'd wish to congratulate some and bash some as well. You know how it is -- I cannot live without bashing someone else in the process. That's what makes you guys snicker behind the monitor where nobody else knew. YOu can always tell your friends, "Did you read what RT said? That was so awful!" But the reality is that when nobody is around you, you laughed at the comments I made because it is SO true.
The folks that I do not know who has been eliminated because they wasted my space and time. These ones who got mentioned are, rest assured, going to be commented. Anything to add, feel free to talk about it in the comment box!
Doctor of Philosophy
Carolyn D. McCaskill -- This is another milestone for Deaf African-American woman whose I never took a class under but I enjoyed talking to her in person. She is dynamic and funny person.
Doctor of Audiology
Nobody I knew is on the list-- do you think I'd befriend an Audiologist? My ass, fuckwads.
Nobody else I knew!

William George Garrow -- This is hearing guy whom I first thought was Deaf and he loved it. Very cute, but straight. Very cool, laid-back skaterboy! He told me that he does not have a cellphone nor a regular phone. He only owns TDD, videophone and pager. He said that he does not have hearing friends. I have to decree him as Deaf person, Will you are now Deaf.
