I've thought about this myself. . . Thank you, Retrofuturist, for the reminder that each of us is a lamp unto ourselves--an island of peace. What's good for one, may not be so good for another. I often meditate on "the middle way" when situations like this arise. I've also used this thought with vegetarianism, movies, concerts, etc.
