VOH Covers Progress on Noise Fix

The Voice of the Hill this week carries a story about the latest developments in the H & 8th St NE community’s effort to gain relief from hours of amplified speech every weekend.

The story offers residents’ views, as well as those of the D.C. labor unions. To clarify, H Street NE residents and businesses have no desire to regulate speech. We only want limits placed on noise levels.

After all, one person’s free speech does not mean another must be forced to hear. Such a draconian interpretation of the First Amendment would mean you, the reader, should be forced to read this blog just because I have the right to publish it. Nonsense!

Reporter Ben Weinstein’s full story (H Street Preachers, Amplified Speech Might Get Turned Down) is available online.
