Response to New, All-time Helicopter Noise-Pollution Record Likely This Month...


New record set today (Oct 24), 81 buzzes for October 2003, and counting. Those responsible (the "helicopter people") are obviously totally out of touch with Mt Vernon, and perhaps reality.

I won't define "helicopter people" here precisely, for now. I'll have to think about it for awhile. But it includes some locals who encouraged the damned things to come here in the first place, some other locals who have financial interests in their ongoing operations, as well as the out-of-state privately owned helicopter company. We can also toss in the large subsidies which Illinois gives to helicopters, despite the state's dire financial situation.
