Good morning;

Speaking as a former resident in and around San Diego, the Los Angeles Valley has had a reputation for years for having a "strange atmosphere." The Los Angeles Indians even talked about how the smoke from their fires would rise up to a certain level, spread out, and stay there.

Still, the criticism about the legislative banning of lighter fluid, Iso-Propyl Alcohol, and a few others, is valid, and will have interesting consequences in other industries that the guys up in Sacramento failed to consider in their "deliberations." It is comforting to know that the legislators are remarkably similar in all regions of the country, including Washington, D. C. And, D. C. is another place were I lived, so I can justify my criticism there also.
