Sitting in a restaurant last month with Mrs. Sopwith, it was impossible to have a conversation because the large TV over our heads and the six others within 12′ were blaring. Living in Southern California, it is nearly impossible to escape obnoxious TV’s and their noise pollution. Bars, restaurants, cafes, heck even grocery stores have them assaulting us.
On this particular night, the normally mellow Mrs. Sopwith was quite unhappy. After droning on about the evil trend of constant noise in our world, she finally said the magic words: “I wish I could turn off every TV in here.” Being the typical faithful husband, I decided to make her wish possible.
