Run Away! It’s Barry Manilow!

Convenience stores have used classical music to keep riff-raff away from their parking lots. The U.S. Military played AC/DC and Jethro Tull to flush Manuel Noriega out of the Vatican Embassy in Panama. And the ATF played hard rock, Tibetan chants, and the sound of rabbits being slaughtered hoping to get David Koresh to leave his compound. Now in the Australian town of Rockdale they’re using a new, gross, nerve-wracking, inhumane tactic — they’re playing Barry Manilow’s greatest hits real loud hoping it will drive away car enthusiasts who gather at a local park on weekend nights. Where’s Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the U.N., and Angelina Jolie when they’re really needed?
