No doubt, loud "music" provides temporary satisfaction
for those who must have it. The same can be said for
cigarette smoke. Both types of temporary satisfaction
can do long-term damage for those addicted, and harm
can be inflicted on others while the addictees are nourishing
their short-term needs.
Science can measure and report on the damage done
to people by excessive noise. This is what we right-to-
quiet advocates must focus on, for the issue cannot be
dismissed as "subjective" or "a matter of personal taste."
