Letter to the Editor: All noise isn't bad for you

Tuesday, August 1, 2006

To the editor:

In response to the letter "Too much noise can be dangerous": First and foremost, there are good and bad levels of noise. You can turn up a "clean" stereo system and listen to it loud without any hearing damage at all. So what. A TV and music in a doctor's office. It has been that way since I was a little kid back at Doc Jaeger's office years ago. This is 2006. I am 44 years old, and I am going to roll with the changes. I am not going to be an old fuddy-duddy who constantly complains. If you hate noise, you should have been born deaf.
