I will do that Eric. We don't know as of yet the cause. A genetic screening has been done, but we haven't received the results yet. There is no readily apparent cause. As I said, she was born in the "normal" hearing range and, in fact, we have video of her at approximately the age of one (she was on pace to be an early talker) repeating back to us words in English and Spanish and then that ability began to fade. I recognize in the long run she will be fine, but even now I can't type this without tearing up. It's been a tough journey so far.

My daughter was born hearing, but has steadily been losing it since about the age of one. Now she is five and is severe to profoundly deaf and on her way to getting cochlear implants at Motts. She is also an athletic freak (yes, at the age of five) and we have worried about her ability to play team sports, so this kid's success is really encouraging to witness!

At least the WLA were creative, bitingly sarcastic, and excellent writers. This...Jesus, 10+ years I've been here and this may be what drives me away. Ufers of Borges play-calling couldn't even do that. Somebody send up the bat-signal for Brian in hopes that he comes here and salts the earth.

...isn't by scheme, but rather by superior talent. Interesting theory Honcho. If only football coaches knew about this, they'd quit this 'Spread' nonsense.

|22 weeks 1 day ago||The purpose?||
Is the contract's only purpose to protect the employee? I understand it to be an employment agreement between two parties. If you can just get up and leave, why have a contract at all? Just have an exchange of values: labor/performance in exchange for pay. If a contract isn't binding for a length of time it defeats the point, doesn't it? I'm seriously confused by this as I am with pro players who hold out two years into their agreement. You signed a four deal for X amount of dollars, now you're holding out?

And as of this year, any private college in the state.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Speculative||
That's entirely speculative. Only Janet (I can't think of her last name, but the ex-superintendent of KPS) knows the donors and she has always referred to them non-descriptly. I only know this because I used to work for the Upjohn Institute which assisted in overseeing the fund. Either way, the Promise is funded into perpetuity by an anonymous donor(s).

What a phenomenal example of the opportunity and empowerment that the Kalamazoo Promise provides for young people. Good on you for earning your way into Michigan, Simeon!

Blimpy's is anything but overrated. It is the Tacopants of burgers.

I was lucky enough to see Wesley live at Club Soda. It was just as weird in real life as it was on cassette.

I was just told a few minutes ago that BW3, Sidetrack, and Red Rock in Ypsi currently have Hopslam. I can't first-person vouch for it, but good luck!
