The first order of business is to build primary sewage treatment plants to treat the water flowing from our toxic city gutters and into the river. The dramatically increased density of cities using the LA river as a cheap chemical dumping ground is unacceptable now, and is getting worse by the day.

Currently, there's so much putrified organic and synthetic carcinogenic discharge coming out of the LA river after every rain, OSHA is soon going to be forced to order the Queen Mary to wear a tampon.

Trees and electric busses, and all that union-related nonsense can wait. Let's initiate plans to get those treatment plants built NOW!

Don't worry. Long Beach has some of the most polluted air in the nation. No doubt revolutionary Council tax and control-masters will come up with some way to spread anti-smoker hysteria for the purpose of scapegoating the decent women and men who partake in the simple worker *("middle")* class pleasure of smoking an occasional cigarette or cigar. I just wish revolutionary Council would expend some of that nervous energy to address the black crud that permeates every inch inside and outside of our overtaxed humble homes. I often wonder if they have ever given thought to the fact that our children are breathing that stuff into their little lungs.

Actually, that "black crud" you're noticing is from China. They don't have an EPA regulating anything there, and they're firing up new coal plants at an astounding rate.

You could be right, but it just seems odd that every time revolutionary Council engages in propaganda extolling "cleaner port air" as a justification for increased port traffic, air quality gets worse. One can only wonder whether there is any connection to the amount of unspeakable harassment meted out to decent tobacco users, including ever higher taxes that are imposed upon decent worker *("middle")* class Long Beach women and men who partake in the simple pleasure of enjoying an occasional cigarette or cigar. Perhaps if China would quit sending us all that stuff, they wouldn't need to burn so much coal.

When you refer to the act of anyone telling someone to put out their butt in any social setting as "unspeakable harrassment," you undermine your argument, by wildly overstating your case, as well as clearly and concisely qualifying yourself as someone who might have a mental problem related to drug addiction, and obsessive-compulsive disorder related to advanced age.

Yes. I agree. Understating the case - such as I do - can give believers in fanatical tax and control related Government propaganda the idea that it is a trivial matter. Understatement is a characteristic of my British heritage. If you want to do a little introspection, can I recommend Eric Hoffers' excellent analysis that is contained in his pre-revolution work "The True Believer"?
