You’d never guess there had ever been any such thing as night.
Night-time in my neighborhood isn’t much like night-time anymore. Everybody’s got outdoor lights that burn all night, all aimed at everybody else’s bedroom windows.
To have even a chance of getting a decent night’s sleep, I have to put heavy sheets of cardboard over the window and run the air conditioner every night… because if I don’t run it, there are cars racing up and down on street all night–really, who bothers with mufflers anymore?–and most of them are playing truly rotten “music” on their sound systems.
Never mind the heart attacks. We’re all just going crazy.
