After listening to loud music, are we sure they can still hear?

I do remember in college, my roommate bought a Neil Young album. I didn't like Neil Young but he played it over and over. The more I heard it the more I liked it, till I finally bought the album for myself.

Perhaps this will increase Barry Manilow's sales.

Now THIS is appropriate, natural consequence!! Congrats to the Fort Lupton law enforcement for coming up with such a kooky, effective sentence.

Another "artist" to add to the list for the most hardened offenders would have to be Yanni.

Kenny G. would be better. Remember the scene in "Wayne's World" with Garth in the dentist chair at the Kenny G. concert...

I thought torture was being ruled unconstitutional...i.e. Guantánamo. Where is the ACLU?

I liked Barry's Copa Cabana myself. I guess the artist I could never listen to was Whitney Houston.
