It was in the news again today. Air quality may well be a problem. What was funny though was today's interview with a young family in sight of the plant. The interview took place in the driveway. Everybody is standing around in a cloud of charcoal smoke from the barbeque they are using. Visibility was about four feet. The mother states, "I don't know what they're doing over there but we are always coughing and we want to know why."

They are way to busy drinking beer taking drugs and killing each other on the tax payers dime. Killing each other not a problem.
