Amplifier, Money and a Broken Qur'an

(CLICK TO ENLARGE) One group’s obnoxious amplifier blares among posters, a jug of donated money and a smashed Qur’an. The items littered the H Street NE sidewalk Saturday, Aug. 5. (Copyright © 2006. David Klavitter)

We have very different noise problems up here (Canada) than you do. Yours must be excruciating at times. In a way you're lucky, though, as it is very defined and potentially containable if you can get the laws changed. Not to minimize the intrusive awfulness of it. Were I you, I would have sold and moved by now, I would think. I couldn't take something like that for a couple of years, but then, my job is listening and I work from home.

Oops, sorry. BTW, I put a link to your page on my blog, if that's okay. If not, let me know.

Shoot. I'm sorry. I made a mess. My first day at this game. HOpe you can edit it, because I can't see where to do it.

The city council is in recess, Lonnie, so I'm exploring my creative side. Though my Photoshop skills hardly compare to yours.

Welcome, listner. Glad to know that we have a North American coalition for quiet.
