Smokestack Lightening

Detroit Free Press, July 16, 1972
Everybody's beloved Eloise smokestack blew out poufs of kissable air according to the Wayne County Department of Health despite complaints of black smoke regularly streaming from its brick orifice during the heyday of the facility. Just the same, in 1972 the WCDH converted its two remaining coal-burning boilers to natural gas. Which sounded like a cover-up because it was and justifiably so since the public loves being hoodwinked. Meanwhile, they were fining businesses for the exact same thing but I guess that's how most governmental agencies justify their existence.
