I had a brilliant idea this morning, when I woke to the sound of an air compressor and some sort of powered metal saw, making this probably the 14th or 15th day in a row where our apartment has been subjected to some sort of construction-related noise from at least one side of the apartment. How about having four weeks during the year here in the city when construction would be prohibited? Any construction producing significant amounts of noise, that is, which would rule out anything that involved power tools, hammering, scraping, sawing, drilling, etc. I don't think I would be bothered if the neighbors were gluing together a cabinet, or building a brick wall — provided they had cut all the necessary bricks beforehand! It wouldn't have to be a whole, four-week block of inactivity, just one in the middle of every season. Call it "Your quarterly dose of peace of mind."

Supporters? I may just have to write to the mayor's office.
