A recent EPA report showed that half of Americans live with unhealthy air quality every day. It's just not thick enough to see all the time like in L.A. or Atlanta or D.C.
You're right, one of the things that got me to give up internal combustion activities for a long time was hanggliding, when you get up a few thousand feet and top out into an inversion layer, you fly up into a murky purple layer, but when back on the ground and looking up through it the thin way it's imperceptible. Nasty, and it's up there alot!
