Muffle the muffler complainers

I can’t believe that the Red Deer Express would publish the ridiculous nonsense (Letter to the editor) spouted by Mark Gaboury in your July 7, 2010 edition.

Lots of things make noise! What about the music blaring from stereos worth far more dollars than the vehicle that carries it?

What about construction noise? What about that annoying little “beep beep” that commercial vehicles make when they back up? What about playgrounds and school yards, with all those kids running amok and squealing?

What about the garbage/recycling/yard waste trucks rolling down the street in the wee hours of the morning?

If the issue is noise – then let it be every noise and leave the babies ears and the bikers out of it.
