My god people! We live in a highly populated area with three major airports in close proximity. And you expect no or little noise? Get over it! If you want to live some place with no jet noise, move to Wyoming or Montana for god's sake! Honestly, people move in next to airports and expect no noise. Are you people that stupid or just that self absorbed? Don't answer that, I already know the answer.

And don't expect to use one of the best international airports that is less than a 30 minute drive from your totally isolated and quiet home.

Peter, Voter,

While I sometimes disagree with your positions on issues, I'm 110% in agreement with both of you on this one.
