    For every person who "jokes" about going deaf listening to loud music....... guess what.... they are already "aware"
    Okay, so I just read that it is being funded by some grant from the "Fund for Public Health" which allegedly raises funds through non-tax dollars.

    But, regardless....... I think a grant from the "Fund for Public Health" could be better used on some other important topic.

    Until you drive the Democrats out of NYC, keep expecting things like this.

    I make furniture. I wear a pair of noise cancelling headphones when I'm running the big stuff. They help a lot. You can buy an inexpensive pair at Walmart. They're usually in the sporting goods section around where the fire arms and ammo are. They're adjustable, so it's possible to hear a little or a lot of what's going on, if you need to. I don't know if this is helpful or not for you, but there it is, anyway.

    Re: ear buds

    From a semi-deaf man.....
    Lets these fools do what they wish....man is NOT easily swayed , young man all the more..

    But, affix a note on a man's PERMANENT health record...that he "enjoyed" listening to loud crap more than he respected his own self.

    Todays hearing aids, are expensive and a royal PITA..
    ask how I know....optional...
    This iPod thing, for me , may have some tworth...But instead of todays junk-yard "music", I prefer Bach and Beethoven, Mozart and Mendelssohn.

    Its either keep permanent records or take the place of good common sense.....which will it be ?

    Are you ever an extremist.....I think a $100,000 fine and the loss of their precious noise makers should suffice...

    Re: ear buds

    How many years do we have to hear about this crap? Just **** off. People like loud music and if it causes them to lose their hearing that is their problem.
