Today’s Episode of “The Onion or Reality”

Earlier this month, Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would ban camera phones from having a silent mode when taking a picture.

The Camera Phone Predator Alert Act (H.R. 414) would “require any mobile phone containing a digital camera to sound a tone whenever a photograph is taken.”

Even better would be a bill requiring shoes to make a particular noise. Or people to wear little bells around their necks.

I wonder if red-light cameras, satellite spy cameras, and other surveillance tools will be Rep. Pete’s next targets? (HT: cnet)
