Just read Moses’ Last Word/First Word about the noise in eat­ing es­tab­lish­ments [“Si­lence Is Golden,” June]. I’ll be look­ing for places with the ANPL sign! I went to din­ner to­day with four friends and couldn’t hear the man seated at the end of our ta­ble. We’d just been to a movie, so this was our op­por­tu­nity to catch up with each other and dis­cuss the movie. The restau­rant not only made this a chal­lenge but left my ears ring­ing for hours af­ter­ward.

Re­cent stud­ies show that peo­ple or­der more food when they are in a loud en­vi­ron­ment, but I re­ally feel for the hear­ing health of the staff who have to spend eight hours in these en­vi­ron­ments – they’re go­ing to be hear­ing im­paired be­fore their time! — Cynthia MacDougall, Bar­rie, Ont.
