Get out your tin foil hats, everybody. A new affliction known as "electro-sensitivity" is causing a stir in Santa Fe. A group in the New Mexico capital is claiming to have allergies to Wi-Fi resulting in all sorts of troubles including chest pains that lasts for days. They claim that providing Wi-Fi in public buildings is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and they want the signals shut down.
City councilor Ron Trujillo said, "It's not 1692, it's 2008. Santa Fe needs to embrace this technology, it's not going away."
I guess nobody informed the "electro-sensitives" that TV, radio, cell phones, remote controls, walkie talkies, automobile keyless entry, cordless phones, wireless mice, (should I go on?) all operate on radio frequencies just like Wi-Fi. Regardless, the city attorney is looking into the matter and will deliver a statement by the end of the month.
