Hair Braiding Drama

Patriot News article on the fear of unlicensed hair-braiders vs. the danger in regulatory professions (though they emphasize the former). Read Stephen Albert's commentary on the burdens of state licensing, which notes that you could be trained to become and EMT in one-third the time it takes become a licensed hair-braider and it takes one-seventh the training requirements to carry a gun as a security guard.

FYI, the rate for death by handguns slightly outpaces that for death by badly braided hair.
