    My home state's air is dangerous!

    From WCCO/CBS News:

    The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has issued an air pollution health advisory for the southern two-thirds of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities metro area.

    The MPCA says fine particles are near an unhealthy level for sensitive groups in the Rochester area. Levels are lower but approaching unhealthy for sensitive groups in the rest of the southern half of the state, including the Twin Cities.

    Sensitive groups include people with heart or lung disease, children and athletes.

    The advisory is in effect through Monday. The MPCA says air quality is expected to improve as weather conditions bring winds early next week.
    I'm so glad I don't live down there... But you think that this might be a problem because the WIND has to take the pollution away... And Our local Fox News reported that southern Minnesota has the most polluted air in the country. Obviously the land of 10,000 lakes has screwed up somewhere.

    This sounds like it could be due to supervillain activity. Has anyone been overheard calling the place, "Drakkesota"? Any sightings of red-suited henchmen? Strange green lights?
