Cum On Feel The Noize Ordinance

Jan 18, 2014 by

I’m sorry I missed the demonstration against the noise ordinance. It was really more of a defenestration since the bill was withdrawn by its sponsors.

Hmm, I wonder if there was any Tucks terlet paper involved? You could roll it out instead of a red carpet…

When will our City Council learn to NOT write over broad and unenforceable laws? Remember the tarot card reader flap? The answer to my rhetorical question is NEVER. The busy bodies and Uptown Ladies will see to it that we will continue to have these damn fool debates.

I, for one, wish everyone would take a chill pill, decide if there’s actually a problem and devise a common sense solution instead of posturing and sermonizing. Of course, it’s more fun to preach and pose so that’s unlikely. The best thing I’ve read about the whole thing came from vestigial Picayune columnist Jarvis DeBerry who is worried that the ordinance will grow like urban kudzu or topsy. I am too, which is why we should proceed with caution.

DeBerry also focuses on how this will impact real people in actual neighborhoods instead of banging on about the golden tourist goose or the importance of “culture bearers.” That’s a new term to me and a pretentious one to boot. I only hope that they’re smarter than the average bearer…

This entire post was an excuse to make that bearer pun and to post this Slade classic. Why? It’s what I do:
