You know how Claremont McKenna prepares its alums for statesmanship?
Well, CMC alum Assemblyman Mike Feuer CMC '80 (D-Los Angeles) has found the modern scourge of our era: electronic billboards. Dear god!
From Los Angeles Business Journal:
The issue is also on the agenda in Sacramento, where Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-Los Angeles, has introduced a bill to place a moratorium on digital billboards until safety studies are completed. Critics say those illuminated signs, powered by light-emitting diodes, can distract drivers because of their brightness and changing images.Next they'll come for our cellphones and eating behind the wheel. Oh wait, they've already come for that? Fortunately, I have Chuck DeVore CMC '85 and Dr. Phil to help me detox. Chuck knows that we should have a policy for liberty, not busybodies.
