doesn't sound frugal.

tony does that. while we were talking he noticed the fire burning down
and added more of those paper bags that used to contain cement.

he's probably ok on that one, since he doesn't have any monitors. our
local trash-to-steam plant does. they doubtless emit 1,000,000,000,000
times more lead than tony, but it's very dilute, and they have a very
tall chimney. no problem.
