From the Boston Globe -Trying to keep peace quietly:

The city was all for Donovan Walker’s “No Violence Zone” in Roxbury’s Ramsay Park back when he proposed it in 2004, after a brazen daylight shooting of a 23-year-old basketball coach in the park.

..

But now Walker says the city has changed its tune.

The city Parks and Recreation Department is requiring several permits, which they won’t give him without a note of endorsement from the police. Police so far have refused, citing complaints in the neighborhood about noise and the number of youths gathered in the park.

It would be a shame to let a noise issue get in the way of good works.

For what it’s worth, I’ve been in contact with some of people involved in this matter. Hopefully something can be worked out.

From Slate.com -The peculiar pleasure of earplugs:

Like many good ideas, the earplug was something of an accident. It had its origins in a discovery made just 40 years ago, in 1967, by scientist Ross Gardner Jr

Gardener and his team discovered earplugs as a byproduct of a project called “joint sealants.” Gardener was developing a resin that had unusual properties of energy absorption. This material, by coincidence, was abbreviated to E-A-R.

I have just one question:

Why?
