    A relative was looking for a house and the cheapest ones in the area were near a mushroom farm on steilacoom road…

    The breeze told him not to buy there.

    Leo hates the whole area, or he ate the whole area?

    I wonder how close Gary’s present house is to the one they did not buy and the hog rendering plant? Maybe Leopold could pay it a surreptitious visit from time to time if he were running out of fresh neighbors….

    I used to go through there to get to Ft Lewis North Post…

    I can’t believe that the rendering plant can smell worse than a hog farm.

    Where’s the big sewer pipe dumping sludge into the river? Let’s have some realism here!

    I went to a high school where there was a paper mill next door. I always hated going outside for phys ed.

    The lagoons for the pig waste are hidden behind the building. They only overflow when it rains, or when the owners haven’t gotten around to having the waste shipped off to be sprayed onto nearby vegetable crops.

    Believe it or not, but a sugar beet processing plant is worse than any hog farm, feed lot, rendering plant, waste disposal facility or even a dog food plant. Actually, worse than all put together.

    “These mushrooms are dark”
    “Yeah, but you know what they grow them in”
    “I’m not hungry”
    “Can I have your mushrooms?”
    ?
    Also, frequently complaints are made that smelly or loud businesses are located in minority neighborhoods. I figure minorities often have less money, so they (we?) move into cheaper locations which have less desirable businesses. Cart and horse concept, chicken and egg question
