  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.
