No, I'm not a closet lover of plane noise. I don't like to hear a distant p=
lane in a otherwise quiet place, but it's harder to say why, or why it migh=
t be a good thing if other people don't either when they currently barely n=
otice it.

Maybe it's because I know it'll be obvious on a recording. So why make reco=
rdings if it just leads to annoyance? One could get bogged down in discussi=
ons about the thin edge of the wedge, death by a thousand cuts, give 'em an=
d inch and they'll take a mile, etc. Maybe it's better to stick with the qu=
estion of nearby planes, and avoid the topic of more subtle noise.

So you see, it's probably a good idea to think these things out beforehand.
