Has there ever been a person more relentlessly energetic than Mike Bloomberg? The New York Post reports that our outgoing mayor is launching yet another initiative in his ongoing campaign for clean living, and it’s targeted to the young folks and their deafness-inducing earbuds.

Oh, and clean your damn room while you’re at it.

The Post says:

Hizzoner’s health officials are planning a social-media campaign to warn young people about the risk of losing their hearing from listening to music at high volume on personal MP3 players, The Post has learned.

“With public and private support, a public-education campaign is being developed to raise awareness about safe use of personal music players . . . and risks of loud and long listening,” said Nancy Clark, the city Health Department’s assistant commissioner of environmental-disease prevention.

Too bad there’s no PSA campaign that’ll turn down the volume on the subway platform.

Next he’ll make us all sign smartphone contracts promising to put our iPhone away during dinner.
