Full House for Marlee

It was standing room only last night for Marlee Matlin at New York's Union College. Some 150 people greeted the deaf actress. The appearance was part of the College's Presidential Forum on Diversity series. The campus student paper quotes her as telling the audience,
"As my friend Stevie Wonder said to me, only when those who see can open their eyes, those who can walk can open the doors, and those who can hear are no longer deaf, can we finally stand side by side equally to one another and celebrate our diversity."
