In my last entry I talked about the horrendous air we’re breathing here in Salt Lake. It’s so bad that there is no way every single person living here could not know about it. And know how bad it is to breathe it in for long periods of time (short periods of time, actually). Yet I’ve witnessed people jogging (one in a t-shirt and shorts) on almost a daily basis.
The best eyewitness account though? A dude was out riding a stationary bike on State Street as a form of advertising for an exercise equipment store. It was like the manager said, “You know what, swinging a sign around is just not enough. Let’s have him ride one of the bikes we want to sell in this toxic, freezing air. Yeah, that’s just what we’ll do.” When that guy gets lung cancer he should totally sue.
