quieten off, as my grandmama would say

Last weekend I got to see some of you folks and to meet at least one of you gentlemen for the first time. It was fun as hell, and it reminded me that it's been far, far to long since I wandered this way with a post about the idiocy and madness of this grand world of ours.

States all over America are banning smoking -- in bars, in restaurants, in San Fransisco. But Europe has us beat hands down. They are banning loud concert halls. And i don't mean the latest Rammstein show.
[Orchestras] are altering their repertories. And conductors are reconsidering the definition of “fortissimo.”

That's right: turn that damned Wagner down, you punk kids.
