Seeking silence: Ultimately, it's an inside job
from By Lisa Cole
Noise — it's everywhere! Noisemakers abound: fans, compressors, leaf blowers. Even libraries, once a respite enshrouded in a tomblike hush, have now become community headquarters.

The difference between sound and noise depends upon the listener and the circumstances."
