Oh puhlease

The excellent photography website The Online Photographer has pointed out a story where US Representative Peter King has introduced a bill

To require mobile phones containing digital cameras to make a sound when a photograph is taken.


I guess the idea is to warn people in case some nasty person was taking a photo of you in secret. I don't know about you but the world, and especially the mobile phone, is noisy enough already. Also there are compact cameras the size of a mobile, will these be the next target?

Frankly I think Mr King has a tadge too much time on his hands.

Oh really!!!! How utterly ridiculous! But scary that time should even be spent in thinking about this by a US Government Reperesentative, let alone doing something about it!!
