We were out sipping a beer this weekend at one of our local haunts, chatting with friends, keeping a tangential interest on a football game or two and generally enjoying ourselves as music played in the background when some dude, who apparently thought he ran the place, told the bartender, quite loudly, "It wouldn't kill you to turn down the music." No, as far as we know, no one has ever been killed by music, loud or otherwise. But also, no one has ever died from keeping their damn mouth shut and just listening to the completely appropriately leveled and mostly easy-going music playing in a public place. Does this guy go also to swimming pools and tell people to put their shirts on? Come on, pal, you don't run the place, OK? Jeez, WTF?
