Wash Times Notes Noise Bill

The Washington Times updated its readers on the bill that would protect D.C. residents from intruding amplifiers. The D.C. City Council is expected to address the issue on Feb. 19.

D.C. Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh, a legal scholar who co-introduced the legislation, is quoted:

"There can be restraints on the time, the place or the manner of speech. If it's unreasonable in light of the particular circumstances, then it can be regulated."

Meanwhile, a second--somewhat unrelated--story about the D.C. police department's new deep-bass siren, dubbed the Rumbler, ran in Friday's USA Today. It contains a reference to Quest for Quiet.
