  1. The contrasting/competing auditory images (of L2, indoor scene, and L3, outdoor scene) are interestingly effective: which sound will drown out which.

    And L1 lends a bit of ambiguity to the evening news, L2 and is layered with multiple meanings: the wine for celebration or for drowning one's sorrows.
