      The noises frustrating me most these days are loud car radios and overly
      loud motorcycles. When the bass of a car system can rattle my windows
      from 300 feet away it is excessive. And the high pitch whine of a
      motorcycle zooming from a stop sign raises my anxiety level. I wish every
      city in the US would adopt some sort of noise pollution. Has Europe
      addressed these problems, or are Europeans more conscious of the bother
      these things cause? I think one of the side benefits of the car is the
      isolation from the problems they cause. Concern for neighbor has
      disappeared from America. I laugh when I hear G. Bush's plan for public
      support of social programs. Nobody cares about the people around them
      when they are isolated from the problems of the poor, sick, and elderly.
