Cameron Barrett's Camworld points us to an article in the San Jose Mercury News about a blind man suing the Bay Area Metropolitan Transportation Commission on the basis that their web site, by being overly graphical and having a paucity of text, violates the ADA by making it inaccessible to him and other handicapped users. Now, as a Libertarian I'm no great fan of the ADA, but as a user of the web I'd like to offer Randy Tamez up for sainthood. You go, dude! And if you need a donation to your legal fund, I'm there! There are, of course, dissenting opinions, apparently from people with the attention span of a gnat who don't understand information imparted without pretty colors. Funny that these people should be journalists, huh? (Yes, Dan is in a pissy insulting mood this morning.)
