an honest answer from a blind man

why is the society of the blind having more members that are not blind? the blind membership chairman answered. 'when the applicants tell me that they are blind i have to take their words for it.' the above story was posted in the talkingcock forum. and i wonder why would these people with sight wanted to join a society for blind people?

Good morning Redbean

Among the blind, the one-eyed man is king. Sorry, about poking fun at the less fortunate. I do not usually do that.

On a more serious note, the poor sighted people probably feel that that is where they would get sympathy and where there are people who understand their plight. Maybe they go there for companionship or maybe they are there because they feel they can help those who are less fortunate than themselves.
