really dumb sentence:

From the New York Times, no less. The story is about the level of noise in Cairo, Egypt. The sentence is:
While noise is never cited as a reason for the spasms of violence, it is a silent enemy that makes the pressures of life that much harder to cope with, people on the streets here said.
"Silent"? Really? Silent noise huh? Brilliant.
