This is almost sensible, except I would drop "plainly." I
don't even want to hear my neighbor's damn stereo, electric
guitar, television, or barking dog even if it is just "faintly"
audible. Also, I don't want to hear it in the daytime either.
The ordinance should be in effect 24 hours a day.
Ordinances of this nature should apply to apartment houses,
duplexes, dormitories, and rooming houses. Ever how humble
one's living quarters should be, one should be able to enjoy quiet.
