I don't know, this video probably makes valid points, but I'm stuck on what kind of heartless and/or brainless person names their son Philip Rucker.

In my defense, I've been coughing all night from what is probably irritation from the smoke but feels like the last act of La Traviata and I'm a bit loopy.

It's not too bad where I am. The sky is blue and not Martian Orange like last year. I don't know what's with the cough.

It's absolutely awful many other places, even for people who are not in the path of the fires, just trying to breathe.

Try steam, Frelga... does that work for you?

In India, a standard way to get through cold winters is to burn tires. That creates havoc with the air that gets into regular houses & apts & sets off everyone coughing. Steam seems to help.

Maybe try a neti pot & salt water gargle if you think it's irritants. Occasionally I'll get a cough/sore throat and I have found that it's from post-nasal drip and an antihistamine before bed helps.

Steam. Make yourself a cup of tea (black, green, herbal, it doesn't matter) and sip it.

We've been having problems with smoke too, both from in-state fires and the disaster in California. I can't even imagine what it's been like to be in California.

It's impossible to parody the absurd.
Yet this is where we find ourselves. :(
