Bob G., TX

I am 64-years-old, and we have been in Houston for 6 years and will be leaving in 3 years if I don't die first. I had no problems with allergies or my lungs until I moved here.

The news media barely mentions air pollution issues here, and some very prominent doctors told me they were asked to play it down. Well guess why? People may move out, which will directly affect the economy. At the same time, if people speak out, it will keep people from moving here.

This country needs to fix a few things. One of our grandchildren lives here too and he as asthma. The man next door has nothing but lung problems, but the Houston Cartel refuses to do the right thing.
