A Pennsylvania man started playing recordings of "Taps" every night on loudspeakers. Neighbors complained. Eventually they agreed to let him play taps at a nearby cemetery.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with news of political compromise. Glen Rock, Pa., showed the way when local resident Joshua Corney started playing a recording of "Taps" every night over loudspeakers. Neighbors complained. The American Civil Liberties Union defended him. At last, all have agreed "Taps" will continue but at a nearby cemetery.

(SOUNDBITE OF BUGLE CALL)

INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION.
