LA's dem dictatorship is more powerful then LB's dem dictatorship. Guess their union bosses decided health issues in LB was no big deal.

Because Long Beach is downwind to carcinogenic residue from port and refinery activity - not to mention being surrounded by one of the most heavily traveled roadway systems in the entire world - the city has some of the most polluted air in the nation.
I am often amused when I see trendy "see and be seen" Long Beachers sitting in revolutionary Council approved "parklets" that have been built out into the roadway by politically connected Big Coffee Moguls, while they drink overpriced coffee that is served by underpaid taxpayer subsidized "baristers".
On the one hand, these "hip trend setters" flee in terror from the very thought of revolutionary Government promoted "secondhand smoke" myth. Yet they are perfectly happy sitting in the roadway breathing deadly secondhand motor vehicle fumes that are made even more potent after combining with the soot of vehicle tires that permeates the entirety of the city.
