Audio Pollution Rant :))
Having Just returned from a ten day trip to France, I’m duly amazed that the French have far less audio pollution than we do here in SF. Tellingly, during my entire trip (Paris and Lille), not once did I hear any car alarms going off, nary a ‘backing-up’ beeper, and zero trunk-thumping thug audio. The only sirens heard were the two-tone police type (like you hear in movies), kind of mild and pleasant almost, especially compared to the massive decibel sirens from hell that we have in SF. Oh, and the French, if anything, have even more motorcycles than we do, yet I never heard one car alarm set off. What gives? I guess we are just a bunch of clueless barbarians over here!
