Today's front-page humor: It's OK to Burn, But Not to Breathe. (Tribune, Air Quality Today, Nov. 11)
The Trib's new air quality index and action alert section is in operation, posted just above the daily weather forecast. Great.
Thanks for giving us a heads up to make prudent decisions! So, what's up for today? "Air quality is moderate ... Highly sensitive groups should reduce outdoor exertion." The forecast is for "hazy [a.k.a. smoggy] sunshine." And the air action alert: "Unrestricted wood-burning OK."
