The irony of the article about our "bad air" ("Utah air is bad, but not worst in nation, Tribune, Jan. 21) falling on the same page as the one entitled "Armed car thief makes off with idling car in west SLC," Tribune, Jan. 21) is not difficult to appreciate.

Law enforcement is encouraged to be vigilant where "auto theft rings" are concerned but not for preventing large industrial air polluters from poisoning us.
