Deaf and unemployed

The ADA doesn't go far enough, and ableist employers find ways around it anyway. We need to try harder. Maybe a version of affirmative action for the disabled?

In the meantime, I'm going to work on showing my deaf character Chooli as intelligent and capable so when the books come out, we can improve the world.
