Reading service for the blind killed | News for Dallas, Texas | Texas/Southwest: "Debra Emerson lost most of her sight seven years ago. She lost some of her independence just a few days ago.

Ms. Emerson of Fort Worth was among 1,500 blind and visually impaired Texans who used a service that electronically read 190 newspapers and magazines over the phone to them. Last Friday, the service was dropped after the state failed to find $40,000 to pay for it."
