Bad air means job security for health workers

The recent article about putting off cleaning up the air for our area made me very unhappy at first reading. After some thought I changed my mind.

As a respiratory therapist, I realized I have job security due to all the illness and disease caused by poor air quality and pollution.

It is very unfortunate that a number of people will have to die from all the disease and illness attributed to and caused by air pollution. The millions of dollars spent annually on the treatment of those diseases could certainly be put to better use.

Oh well, at least all the health care providers are assured of work for years to come.
