An Utterly Uninhibited January

It may be January. It may be cold. But the season does little to inhibit the electrified and battery-operated amplifiers at H and 8th St NE on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

The Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge group heaved their amplified ranting, starting Saturday afternoon and continuing until well after dark. The Rev. Dallas Williams intermittently spoke through his amplifier for about an hour on Sunday.

On a related note, local blog Frozen Tropics snags this timely story from the New York Times about what happens when a new neighborhood bar clashes with long-time residents over noise.

Stay focused on the issue; not the content. Keep us updated on what the elected officials are doing about this. You are making a difference!
