  Interesting that you should choose this example. Back 
then they may have been free from one pollutant (noise), 
but they had another to contend with (smoke). 
  I heard a few women interviewed on a local radio show a 
couple of weeks ago who are modern day amateur pool 
hustlers. They talked of the smoke-free halls that they 
now play in. 
  So perhaps 40 or 50 years down the road the pool halls 
will be smoke-free, noise-free, and polluted with ... ?
