Jim Testa (Jersey Beat)

Twas the day after Christmas
and down at the Court
the old geezers were rocking
with a huff and a snort
3 To Six Inches and Buzzkill, I hear,
both reuniting to bring holiday cheer
and if that's not enough for you Hub City fanatics
we've also got Stuntcocks and Prosolar Mechanics
and that clattering sound up on the roof
one hopes it's just reindeer hot on the hoof
and some jolly fat elf in a big silver sleigh...
- not just the taxman, with more bills to pay!
So drink lots of shots and spirits and beer
Merry Christmas to all... and a solvent New Year!

Saturday, December 26

PROSOLAR MECHANICS, Buzzkill, The Stuntcocks, Three to Six Inches - Court Tavern, 124 Church St. New Brunswick - 9 pm, $8, 21+

Pissed Off!

From the Associated Press:

ďA Maine legislator wants to make the state the first to require cell phones to carry warnings that they can cause brain cancer, although there is no consensus among scientists that they do and industry leaders dispute the claim.Ē
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091220/ap_on_bi_ge/us_cell_phone_warnings


So let me get this straight, science has NOT proven that cell phones cause brain cancer, but Maine Rep. Andrea Boland, as well as San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, each have legislation pending in their local government to put stickers on cell phones saying that it DOES cause brain cancer?!?!?

Letís put aside the libel law suits that cell phone makers will undoubtedly (and rightfully so) file, should either of these bills pass.

No, what horrifies me about this is that instead of backing science, they are siding the same types of rumors that get passed around in e-mails that Snopes (and other such sites), do a good job of debunking.

This ďlabelingĒ is the creationist version of things. If we donít have scientific proof, or even any cases of brain cancer that MAY have been caused by cell phones, how can we allow our government to put a label on a cell phone stating something that there is no concrete proof is true.

Look , if concrete scientific proof comes forward, Iíll be all for the labels, but until that day happens itís irresponsible to put a label stating something that is not fact.

I urge you all to e-mail both of the legislators and let them know that while their heart may be in the right place, creationist labeling is wrong.
