When I was a kid we used to have “smog alerts.” I don’t think we have had them in the last 25 years.

I seem to remember that Phil Silvers got Uncle Jed Clampett to finance the boring of a huge hole through the mountains east of LA, and the mounting a huge exhaust fan inside. LA was going to get the clean air, the people on the other side of the mountains were going to get the smog, and Uncle Jed was gonna get the shaft.

I lived in Pasadena in the early ‘70s. On bad days, my eyes felt like the air had as much sulfuric acid as oxygen.
