his is from Robert J. Throckmorton who says it is an original dated about 1984.

Lawrence Spring, the eminent musicologist, retired and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. One night, he was unable to fall asleep, so decided to play his Stravinsky records. At 2:00 AM, he turned on his sophisticated electronic players and set them to full volume and his Stravinsky concert began. The concert not only shook his house but awakened all the sleepers within a mile radius of it. Within a few minutes, an irate crowd converged on Spring’s house and began throwing stones at his windows and shouting insults at him. Spring called the police. The riot squad arrived and a huge number of persons were arrested.

With what were the rioters charged? With violating the rights of Spring.
