There is a flaw in your thinking, Jim Nutter (Letters, September 25), in telling me to walk my arthritic mother further down the beach if we don’t like the drumming at Main Beach.
I am camping in Byron at the moment. If I wanted to play Wagner very loudly after midnight should I expect the other campers to pull up their tent pegs and move out if they don’t like it?
I wonder if the drummer would be prepared to allow the Hare Krishnas to sing their sweet songs at sunset or Christmas to praise their god? If everyone made music at once it would be a dreadful cacophony. If everyone did what they wanted when they wanted to, it would be anarchy.
It’s all about respect, Jim.
