CALM act

March 21, 2011

The CALM act, passed into law a couple of months ago may be old news but I just learned of it so forgive my lack of relevancy.

We’ve all been there….watching a television program and all of a sudden some infomercial guy is yelling at you at three times the volume of the previous program.  It took a congressional vote,  presidential endorsement and mandated FCC enforcement but it seems that one of life’s little annoyances, super loud commercials that interrupt our TV programs is a thing of the past!

This is such a relatively trivial matter I cannot believe a bill had to be passed to regulate it – however I am glad it did, maybe they can do something about annoying pop-up internet ads too.
