"I am addressing all deaf citizens of Ukraine. They are lying."

Ukraine journalist signs silent protest

"The sign-language interpreter on a Ukrainian TV station Thursday staged a silent protest against the nation's election by signing, 'They are lying'.
Dmitruk told The Moscow Times Sunday that she felt a special responsibility to speak her mind. 'The deaf don't have any other option for getting television news.'"

What a brave woman. I wonder what's happened to her since.

On a completely different note, we had an odd spell of unseasonably warm weather a couple of days ago which led to thunderstorms overnight as warm air met cold. Think thunderstorms don't keep me up anymore? Think again - the thunder was so loud it kept setting off my front door-knock alarm all night, flashing lights, vibrating bed and all!
