Airplane Noise

April 26, 1998

Re "LAX Expansion Publicists Are Catching Flak," April 19: The level of aircraft noise in our city is unacceptable.

I would like to see The Times have a reporter with a decibel meter stand at the corner of Century Boulevard and Crenshaw, or La Brea, or even Western, for one hour. I defy anyone to say that the level of noise is acceptable. How can we possibly think of doubling it? This seems to me to be the worst sort of environmental discrimination, when the least powerful would have their neighborhoods sacrificed to promote commerce and travel.

If we make our city the hub of business for the whole world, and in doing so render it uninhabitable, what will we have accomplished?
