Cool Kind of Incongruous

All in a week’s time, Pittsburgh was voted America’s Most Livable City by Rand McNally and is 2nd only to Los Angeles as America’s Smoggiest City according to the American Lung Association.

Incongruous - I thought that's where laws were made.

I heard on the news that Los Angeles has the greatest amount of smog and in second place was Denver.

Both cities live in a valley and that is why the smog is so bad.

I'm a little confuzzed. Isn't Denver the "mile high" city?

It's a mile above sea level, but it's still in a valley.

Spryte, that must be tough living in such a smoggy area I hope you keep your windows shut in the summer and use AC, and air filtration of some sort during the winter and fall.
