No Noise Break During Memorial Weekend

(CLICK TO ENLARGE) Looking east along H Street NE, fellows from the Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge (ISUPK) shout to sparse crowds during the Memorial Day weekend Saturday at the intersection of H and 8th Streets NE. Despite fewer than usual passersby, the group—as typical—cranked up the amplifier so that residents living well beyond the intersection were forced to hear hours and hours of amplified speech. With the D.C. law providing no decibel limits on non-commercial amplified speech, the noise especially is bothersome, irritating and stressful for those living within close proximity.
