Blinded By The (Laser) Light

This is horrible, and it just goes to show why safety is of the utmost importance in our business. CNN reported yesterday that "A laser show at a music festival injured more than 30 people, Russian news reports said. Some concertgoers lost up to 80 percent of their vision after attending the Aquamarine Music Festival on July 5, the newspaper Kommersant reported."

Now, granted, it also says that the festival was illegally organized and that it didn't have the proper permits. Let's all try to steer clear of such productions, shall we? If it's not worth your integrity, then perhaps actually keeping your profession and livelihood is a motivator! Lots of folks are refusing to comment. Hmmm.

Here's the full story:
