This just came in…

hey stranger, i’ve been checking all day on the slog to see if you’ll provide some explanation for the wretched stench that opressed the entire city this morning. did a sewage treatment plant erupt or something? what gives?

I hadn’t noticed the city smelling any worse this morning than it usually does. But did anyone else notice a stank this morning? Anyone got any thoughts?

actually, i did-- it was not oppressive on cap hill, per se, but it was enough to make me wonder what died in the neighbors' yard.... and why i could still smell it once i was blocks away from home! the smell pretty much disappeared as i walked north towards the u district...

This Times story explains it: "

Oh, thank god. I thought I was going some kind of crazy that requires smelling poop when there is no poop to be smelled.
