Even though Chicago’s own city council voted to better protect downtown residents from nuisance noise, local blog Chicagoist thinks it’s cool to continue to make fun of long-suffering downtowners. So I wrote to Chicagoist publisher Jake Dobkin to tell him why it isn’t.
Yesterday, the Sun-Times published my response to a December 6th Commentary piece on the debate over the right of downtown Chicago residents to demand noise controls on street musicians. They said downtowners should wear earplugs. I said, are you kidding me?
