Ok, I'm putting this one in my 'WTF' file. Have we lost our overbearing, governmental minds? I'm all for hearing safety, but does the gov really need to be involved?  Buy your own damn $1 ear plugs if you need 'em. Minneapolis has mandated that clubs provide ear plugs for live music. S-T-U-P-I-D.

In a story that appeared on WJON.com, the City of Minneapolis has mandated that clubs & bars provide ear plugs to patrons during live music performances starting in April 19th.

The ear plugs won't cost the bars anything because they are being provided by donors. Some clubs oppose the measure because they've been making money selling ear plugs.

This is funny and stupid on so many levels. We've lost our minds. Rock on boys & girls!
