Noisemaker Pens Letter From Quiet Philly Home

In the news, I enjoyed having the option to read (instead of being forced to hear) Minister Yahana’s guest editorial (“We have the right to protest”) in the Aug. 9 Voice of the Hill newspaper. It’s on on page 13.

As his title suggests, he misses the mark completely.

I respect his view and admire his passionate beliefs. However, he failed to justify why D.C. residents should be denied the right to quiet in their own homes.

After all, before his unfettered use of an amplifier in my neighborhood each week, Minister Yahana enjoys quiet solitude at his home, ensured by the city of Philadelphia.

I completely support preachers and protesters in the public space—I just don’t want them in my bedroom.
