Political Correctness come full circle

This morning "Dear Abby" had several letters from deaf people in her column. The main point they made was to get help for children as early as possible if a hearing impairment is suspected. However, the last letter stated that many deaf people do not consider it a handicap or impairment to be deaf. Therefore, they should not (said the letter writer) be referred to as hearing impaired, but should be referred to as "deaf" or as "having a hearing loss". What a refreshing attitude!!!!! Now can we get rid of some of the other gobbledy-gook that permeates our language today???
