While browsing for other stuff on the CBC site, I came upon The Sunday Edition program, and its blog post on the after-discussion for their documentary on loud music in restaurants. It’s interesting to read the commentary and different perspectives on loud music in restaurants. One comment that caught my eye is quoted below:

How many hard-of-hearing people is the loud restaurant industry now generating?
