In our Dispatch article yesterday on tanning salons not adequately warning customers they're increasing their risk of cancer, Stier joked that maybe the city should be required to post warning labels on parks and beaches. Reason magazine's Ronald Bailey responded that he hopes "no would-be health nanny, city council member, or congresscritter" reads our "intemperate musings":
The humor-impaired FDA, or CSPI, or even worse Mayor Bloomberg might read this! Forget mere warning labels! Park benches will be ripped out and picnic blankets and beach towels confiscated as "tanning paraphrenalia." Mr. Stier, for the love of humanity, please be quiet!
Anyone have any duct tape?
