Missing the silence

2017-02-16 06:01

I MISS the peace and quiet one finds in libraries. Internet cafes have screaming disco music, apparently designed to create an ambiance.

How on Earth does one associate the use of a computer to a recreational activity? Try to find information of a medical or legal nature while coping with the intricacies of a computer with that so-called music in your ears. Internet cafes would have far more business if they erected a few “silence” signs.
