One man's repellent
Went downtown this morning. I go downtown the same way I use a telephone: only a few times per year, when absolutely unavoidable. In this case I had to send some stuff to publisher by UPS, and the nearest drop-box (via bus) is downtown.
While waiting at the STA depot for the return bus, I noticed that STA follows the same practice as many downtown businesses, playing classical music through outdoor speakers. Mozart piano concertos, Rossini overtures, Bach harpsichord. Presumably this is intended to repel young dickheads.
As a Baroquen-down old Bach-lover, I found it purely delicious. Made me want to miss the bus and hang around. (But then I would have found it equally delicious when I was a young dickhead. Never could see the point of rock-n-roll.)
In short: Poison for yoots is nectar for coots.\
Artistic sidenote: Serendipity at work. I placed the notes intentionally, but didn't place the shadows from the speakers intentionally. Didn't see them until the image was rendered. They turned out to be more expressive than the notes.
