Bend sidebar—questions and gripes

Down at the Knott Landfill, there's a rule about loads being covered when they're brought in. Most dumps—er, landfills—have a similar rule.

But over at the landfill, off of Simpson, between Mt Washington and Century, where big trucks bring in debris from excavations—housing subdivisions, downdown, places like that—a constant string of dump trucks bring in uncovered loads of rock and dirt. It blows dust up here where I live, right off of Simpson. Lots of dust. Is it the dust of progress or lazy enforcement of the law, or is there even a law about loads being covered?

And, speaking of Simpson, if you want to watch late-night street racing (or hear it), this is definitely the place.
