Thanks Fred. Bottom line on the access to information alone the entire State 
apparatus violates the ADA and 504 as I've demonstrated over and over again. 
So has MCB itself. The lack of timely and accessible information in the 
format most effective for the individual which was required under the ADA 
alone as of January 26, 1992 is the gun they stick in our faces to rob us of 
fundamental access to programs, services, benefits and activities of this 
sstate including core rehab services themselves. It also is the weapon used 
to deprive folks of due process and equal protection under the law in legal 
proceedings, quasi-legal proceedings including ALJ and CAP complaints, and 
this is a core civil right violation.

We the blind of Michigan are not children of a Lessor God. We are supposed 
to have the same fundamental core civil rights and Constitutional rights as 
everyone else.

Thus these are federal guarantees. But, the State like the old state 
righters in Jim Crow South continually use state abuses to try to elude 
their federal civil rights obligations.

This is why I fowarded the brilliant legal paper related to Tenbroek's and 
Grhams's, a blind leader and deaf leader respectively to this list in their 
contributions to the classic civil rights case, Brwon v. Board of Topeka. 
That was the case that threw out decades of "Jim Crow" and that ruled 
separate is not equal in our public schools.

Fast foward to today in Michigan and we, the blind and indeed others with 
disabilities, have not only separate but unequal access to everything!

And yet we get folks who continually say, "Let's go to this or that 
corrupted state actor like our AGs for endless opinions when they are the 
very people supporting the violations of rights and federal law in the first 

We continue to go to the very armed robbers of our rights for justice. There 
are no remedies when there are no effective checks and balances and when the 
system itself is so inherently corrupt.

Oh, yes for a decade the likes of Pilarski et al said let's take all these 
ADA issues to Pat Cannon because he's the expert and State ADA 
coordinator...But he was the robber of our rights. Fine and objective judge 
he has made eh?

Peace with Justice,
