The music dies

The music dies

Crank it up: Harley-Davidson has banned music on its factory floor, saying it interferes with safety and productivity (Business Briefly, Page A4).

And it's just as well, since everyone at the factory is practically deaf from listening to Harley engines all day.

Broken cameras: Lawmakers in Hawaii have passed a measure that would protect celebrities from overeager paparazzi photos (Page A2). The bill was instigated by Aerosmith frontman and former "American Idol" judge Steven Tyler after unwanted photos were taken of him in Maui.

Since the bill also would protect our eyes from unwanted photos of Steven Tyler, The Buzz calls on Hawaii to pass it into law ASAP.

Down the rat hole: Ten years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the country is so unstable and broken that even its leaders question whether reconstruction efforts were worth the enormous cost to American taxpayers (Page A3).

Even Harley-Davidson factory workers can clearly hear the giant sucking sound of $60 billion in U.S. taxpayer money flushed into oblivion.
