Are all you folks nuts? Today's cartoon is a play on the recall efforts against Chris Anderson versus Tuesday's weathermen who ALL made a faulty forecasts. Both did something someone else didn't like, and in Chattanooga, that means let's give them the boot.

When "the smell" covers the north end of downtown, which it frequently does, it is not from the combined sewer system, it is from the sewage treatment plant itself. The smell drifts across the TN River and blankets the north end of downtown, like a fart in the wind, literally. I agree with Oz. It doesn't happen daily, but 8 to 10 times a month is too much. When you catch "the smell" south of 5th to 6th Street, then it would be from the combined sewers. If the City owned the water company, they could get rid of most of the problem by opening some strategic fire hydrants and flushing the sewer lines out.

When the stench reaches a point where it overpowers the northern part of downtown, which it frequently does, that is not from the pipes in the ground. It is coming directly from the entire operation at the sewage treatment plant that wafts across the TN River into downtown and North Shore. The last two times we took in a Lookouts game, we just about choked. Nothing like eating a hot dog, drinking a beer, surrounded by the smell of excrement.
