Thank Goodness we're protected from hens!!

As my neighbor's son, a high-school marching band member, practices his drumming not 40' from our bedroom window on this evening on this most gorgeous day ---- a day when probably every window is open for miles ---- I give thanks to the city council for protecting us from the scourge of urban hens.

(And while this doesn't apply to drum practice on my street, it's interesting to note that the city also explicitly exempts high school athletics -- such as football games, track meets that go on for hours and hours, with amplified announcements of each event --- from the city noise code).
