Recycled Sounds

When the city of Blue Springs won a quarter-million-dollar grant from the federal government to "study" the Goth culture corrupting its children, Recycled Sounds owner Anne Winter reacted with the same revulsion felt by so many others who remember their own dark adolescent days. "We were all Goths at one time," Winters said before setting out a clipboard for customers to sign in protest. Months later, they're still signing. Although the petition doesn't aim for any particular result, it now sits on the Recycled Sounds counter as a symbol of citizen disgust.
