This story also ran near the end of today's edition (10/7) of All 
Things Considered (NPR/PRI).  The segment consisted of an interview 
with Lorrie Hannon of the New York based League for the Hard of 
Hearing.  It started right off with the suggestion that the 
President's hearing loss was probably related to exposure to loud 
music, and followed up with some statistics on increasing hearing loss 
among teenagers.  "Boom Boxes" were specifically mentioned.  The rest 
of the interview concerned various aspects of hearing aid technology,
cost, effectiveness, digital vs analog, etc.
