OK, does congress have other more important issues to worry about?  Yes.  Am I happy congress is getting involved in this?  Yes.

Congress has made a bill entitled CALM, Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation, which is going to turn down the volume of commercials. It is one of the most annoying things in the world.  Watching your fav TV show and then the commercials come on and the volume of it is was way louder than the show you are watching.

"In my 17 years in the House of Representatives, I've never carried a bill which has been received with so much enthusiasm," Eshoo said. "Only the do-not-call list has even come close."

I hope this bill takes effect.  Perhaps congress can do something about companies owning more than one television station in markets and do the same with radio stations as well. 

Do you guys like this bill of getting rid of loud TV commercials?-Dr.FB
