Great, another day where I can't go run and shed the holiday pounds. Can I get them to reimburse me for the extra asthma meds I'm using?

I suspect that if any

I suspect that if any individual or corporation created that much air pollution they would be fined by every government agency that could manage to get somebody out there to write you a ticket. It was so thick at my house the other day that I was coughing and gagging and my wife had to put a filter mask. Couldn't they do this on a warm day when there was an updraft instead of cold days when there is a temperature inversion that holds the smoke close to the ground?
