I don't have an iPod. Sometimes I feel like the only one in the world. Over the long weekend, I traveled to Washington, D.C. Little white cords draped from the ears of everyone from college students to businesspeople to grocery shoppers. I always wonder what they are listening to. When you have an iPod, you get to choose what you hear. As I walked the streets of our nation's capitol with my open and often freezing ears, I heard all kinds of things those listening to music didn't.

What a bunch of piffle. Are there any normal (eg, non-autistic) people out there that truly enjoy hearing the sounds of cars and footsteps? No, what I'm more likely to hear walking on an urban sidewalk is, "Spare change?". I prefer my iPod, TYVM.

It will prompt more people to take the vaccine to help end the virus.
It will lessen restrictions and provide more freedom for individuals.
It is a violation of privacy and civil liberties.
It will lead to stigma and discrimination.
It will encourage counterfeits and other criminal activities.
