All along I've tried to keep my blogs upbeat and constructive - not a venue for complaining and griping. In that vein, as we deal constantly with the noise and sonic abuse from the Growlers on-ground testing and flights from Whidbey Island (http://www.whidbeynewstimes.com/news/242769751.html for a starter), which cause so many health issues, including shingles outbreaks, my only salvation is to choose my battles. The following article is excellent. And for the sake of sanity, I won't detail what or where my responses to the sonic attacks are. Yes - using a great deal of self-control here! I will say, however, that some attacks make even creating a coherent thought extremely difficult. Enough said.
