Do OLF foes monitor all the other noises? | Letters

Editor,

I am curious to know whether the folks who are anti-OLF monitor the level at which their children listen to their iPhones, boom boxes, etc.?

Having raised two children, I know they had the volume turned way up when using their ear buds, which I am sure was more damaging to their hearing than the “murmur” of an airplane flying overhead for a few seconds now and then.

And what about movies? They are probably the worse culprit of all when it comes to ear deafening volume. Do these folks also forbid their children to attend movies? And do they not attend them also?

There’s something wrong here.

Personally, I love the sound of freedom.
