Is it true that bronzed have more fun?
Colorado Senate Bill 23, a bill intended to prohibit the use of a tanning bed by a minor unless specifically prescribed by a physician -- thus depriving the rest of us of supple, bronzed teens -- advanced yesterday on a 6-3 vote.
Lawmakers toned down the language in the bill, first written about here, requiring that those under the age of eighteen prove parental consent prior to tanning their lithe, athletic bodies -- but no note from a doctor needed. The debate over the bill proved a valuable waste of time for everyone, since that's already the policy at most taning salons. -- Adam Cayton-Holland
