STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with restrictions on selfies. Disney's California Adventure shut down a roller coaster after a rider pulled out a selfie stick. Apparently, it's dangerous to stick a poll up out of a fast-moving vehicle as it ducks through constricted space. Who knew?

Not only that, West Virginia has banned taking selfies while voting. We don't know if such outrages will provoke a movement for selfie civil rights. But if that ever should happen, we do know how the protests will be photographed. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
