From yahoo news probably wrong forum I leave it for others to commentPolitically correct? JohnLONDON (AFP) - A small British airport advertised for an air traffic controller -- and offered those interested an application pack in braille, media reported Friday.(Advertisement)According to the website for Saint Mary's Airport on the Isles of Scilly, off the southwest tip of England, controllers need to be able to keep a close eye on the changeable weather as their work "is not over-dependent upon very costly and sophisticated electronic equipment".But applicants for the job could still ask for an application pack in large type, braille or audio format, newspapers said.A spokesman for the local council said the wording was included on all job advertisements, while the Royal National Institute for the Blind praised its "good practice".

Ever watch any of those reality medical shows on TV. Look closely and you will often see braille signs under the normal sign that says "Operating Room" at the entrance to the operating room. In this PC world, it's probably only a matter of time in both area's. The statement, 'oops' will take on a whole new meaning. lol Fitz
