   I've given this consideration for some time now. I have no doubt we will 
gain ground year after year as we continue our quest for a quieter 
planet. To speed up the process however, we need a catalyst to spark the 
imagination of the general public and gain their support. That catalyst can 
come in several forms. Some common recipes for success in the 90's are: 
"sexy" prominent spokespersons, blockbuster movie hits, and prime time TV 
   Can't you just imagine a movie scene where hundreds and hundreds of irate 
noise victims run to their windows, open them up shaking their fists and 
*whisper* "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this noise anymore!". 
Or in another scene thousands upon thousands of citizens march to capitol 
hill and camp themselves there in complete silence armed with placards 
demanding a quieter country.
   Arline, you had an idea for a TV show. Have you been able to find the 
time to get moving on it?
