Default A well balanced article

Not sure how we missed this before (or maybe I'm the only one who missed it, haha)--great piece in the LDS:

On whether the owners and neighbors are each being reasonable: The owners of a bar have Jimmy Buffet on at low volume until 9 or 10pm--sounds very reasonable to me. The neighbors don't like music drifting every night from a bar that is only 100' from their homes--sounds very reasonable to me.

On whether this is legal (and therefore should be allowed regardless of complaints): The Planning Board must approve for them to continue beyond Sep 3, and the Board may consider neighbors' concerns. So they're legal today, but maybe not tomorrow.

If only our tirades were so well balanced
