This is the Sequim Transit Center, jointly run by the City of Sequim and Clallam Transit. It caught my attention because yesterday’s newspaper announced a new initiative to “discourage” teens and young adults from loitering nearby. . .by piping classical and operatic music from speakers on the side of the building.
The project was lauched a few weeks ago. Teens hanging out near the Transit Center last Friday were asked if the music was succeeding in driving them away. The response: “Does it look like it’s succeeding?” This has apparently been a gathering spot for decades.
I can only wonder what Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Puccini and others would think of their music being used as a “teen repellant.”
