SALEM, S.D. -- Standing in an empty field along a wind-swept highway,
Marvin T. Miller, who is deaf, envisions the town he wants to create here:
a place built around American Sign Language, where teachers in the new
school will sign, the town council will conduct its debates in sign
language and restaurant workers will be required to know how to sign orders.
