This is certainly true for some of the boom car boys.
In September I presented to the list the contents of
an ad in Car Stereo Review magazine in which the
advertiser of boom car equipment used a headline
to boast that excessive noise from auto stereos is
a guaranteed way to aggravate people over 40.
The ad clearly promoted aggression and indiscriminant
hatred of older people.
