Wake Up And Smell The Dirty Air!

I’ve had a persistent respiratory something or other for a solid two and a half weeks now. I’m a healthy adult with no history of respiratory problems, and yet– this persistent, relatively unproductive cough. I can’t help but wonder if it’s a product of the constant reek of diesel exhaust in the neighborhood from the Ambassador Bridge. Or a product of the mysterious black particles that get deposited on my porch every morning. Or the tiny flecks sometimes observed in the headlamps of my bike when I come home at night.

Gotta love that business-friendly regulatory environment.

It’s what makes our sunsets worth it!
