Does smog, something Los Angeles has in abundance even without the contribution of massive wildfires, actually intensify sunsets? The answer seems to depend on which source you consult. National Geographic says that dust and air pollution only mutes a sunset's colors. Scientific American, on the other hand, contends that smog simply alters the colors. Believe what you'd like, the colors captured by my camera were especially pretty.
The news last night was also pretty incredible. I was prepared to be let down by the results of yesterday's special election back east but my faith in the integrity of American voters just got a major boost. Dare we hope that the days when truth can be drowned out by cries of "fake news" are ending? I don't know but the political horizon looks rosier to me this morning.
