We have a problem. In the institutions that are supposed to train future generations of Americans who will lead our nation, authorities are promoting -- and the liberal academic establishment is harboring -- the dangerous, insipid notion that Coldplay rocks. Also, they are promoting the use of iPods, which, if you listen to a chorus of social critics, pose more of a danger to our society than communism, terrorists and the designated-hitter rule combined.

I still don't understand why Apple can be sued for hearing loss due to iPod useage. But any other manufacturer that makes portable cd players, cassette players, radios or mp3 players are not heald to the same standard as Apple? You can play anyone of these music listening devices just as loud as an iPod.
Why just Apple? Why not a class action suit to include Sony, Aiwa, Panasonic, Dell, JVC, etc..?
