  2. I believe we should take responsibility for our surrounding and not leave it up to someone or something else. As far as loud cell phone yappers are concerned, I have an iPhone app of dogs yapping loudly which, along with my laughing, can drown out the annoying sound of an unwanted, one-sided, overly-loud phone conversation.

    My thinking is, “I’ll be glad to quit when you do.”

  3. It is an interesting point, but invalid. There are noise ordinances in some communities as well as zoning laws. Cologne and perfume have also come under attack. Of course “hate” crime legislation not only regulates action but also purports to presume what someone is thinking.

    There was a time not so very long ago when every flight had a smoking section. After first banning pipes and cigars, cigarettes too were banned. That was not an airline decision.
