Also in an NPR story about high speed rail was this quote from Rep. Anna Eshoo about the possibility of more trains going through her home town of Atherton:

I go to sleep listening to them going up and down the tracks. It’s too loud. The whistles are very loud.

Rep. Eshoo was in the news recently as a sponsor of the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act. The bill says that TV commercials are “too loud”.
