    If you're one of those people that likes to read the reviews so you can feel like you read the book: "The authors trace smog's invasion back to a gray day in 1943 when visibility was so low that Angelenos -- fearing chemical attack -- rushed from their jobs and crashed their cars in the haze...City officials grew so desperate that they accepted suggestions by mail from anyone with an idea to stop the noxious assault." Chris Daley's review of the new book 'Smogtown: The Lung-Burning History of Pollution in Los Angeles' by Chip Jacobs and William J. Kelly" More reviews, interesting tidbits from the book here.
