    I thought mercury batteries were banned years ago, which was a
    disappointment because that was the only decent battery for my old
    Pentax Spotmatic.

    Well, last night on the local news there was a story about how the state
    (ME), wants to ban the use of mercury batteries in some small toys that
    have built in lights.

    The story said mercury batteries would still be available for hearing
    aids and cameras.

    Was this another screwed up news story, with reporters not knowing what
    they are talking about, or are mercury batteries coming back for cameras
    and hearing aids?

    Maybe they're referring to the *planet* Mercury ?
