Re: Child's scream

That's a good point. Wonder if any lawyers have thought of that
angle for a defense -- hmmm....I can see a market for auditory
experts testifying that the child's screaming evoked insanity
on the part of the parent.....you might be on to something. ;-)

My OSHA expert is still in Philly, though his kids are grown now.
I'll have to give him a buzz and see if he remembers the actual
numbers. Even at 120dB it is pretty bad. Of course, it is
frequency dependent, so the females may be worse-seeming than
the males (which explains why in some countries they drown them).
