Your newspaper reported on Feb. 22 (”Food trucks meet retail,” Community Briefs, page 3) that the Main Street food truck night is expanding. I live around the corner in a rent-controlled building and 10 to 12 food trucks spewing their toxic butane and propane for five hours is killing me and the nearby neighbors. Our crazy city has outlawed smoking everywhere for health reasons yet they allow this poisonous cloud of death because it brings in money.
