>> I respond: Guess what? I have a significant visual impairment (I see 20/200 corrected with contact lenses), but able to see colors, shapes, depth, etc. I can see TV and movies (my college undergraduate and graduate degrees are in media production), but I would rather listen to radio. FYI, I wrote Marilyn vos Savant, of the "Parade Magazine," if I am "blind," as one consumer group considers me to be (I respectfully say I am not; I just have low vision), and she actually published my letter! I added to the fact I can see certain images, etc., including her lovely picture. She quipped, "I think you see just fine, Scott!" LOL! :)
