Cold, Damp Banish Amp

For the third Saturday this year, the boisterous guys from the Israeli School of Universal Practical Knowledge were absent from the southeast corner of H and 8th Streets NE. The dreary day of rain and temperatures in the 40s most likely postponed their weekend tradition of blasting the neighborhood with amplified speech.

Also absent was the group’s battery-powered amplifier. It was a welcome respite for the residents in and around the 700 block of 8th Street.

Sometimes it takes a little drizzle to keep the peace and quiet.

One day that corner will always look like that, Klav. One day ...

It doesn't matter to me--or the rest of the neighbors--if the corner is crowded with idea pitchers. Just no amplifiers, please.

Saturday was a great day, rain or no rain, without the noise of the amplifier on H and 8th. Always surprised how nice and relaxing it really is without all the yelling leaking into your thoughts.
