Things are looking really good for blind people these days. First, South Korea enacts a law that qualifies only the legally blind to be registered masseuses. Then, Republican Representative Edmund Kuempel of Seguin (near Austin), proposes a law that would allow legally blind Texans to go hunting. With laser sights. And the help of sighted chaperone. It's just one of those things that screams "God, this just makes total common sense!" However, much less publicized is the companion bill, also known as the "Ass or a Hole in the Ground?" bill, which unfortunately doesn't stand nearly as good a chance at passing. -- Craig Malisow
