    and/or author of an old book that was written @ air pollution. In one chapter the author spoke with a gentleman from the SE part of the city who had terrible asthma. This man was trying to start a movement that might persuade those polluters to show a bit of consideration for their neighbors.

He served one short term in Joliet and couldn't believe how the old neighborhood went downhill.

    I wonder if that guy's still around.
