It’s Budweiser Time
The smoke billows out of huge stacks further darkening the already polluted horizon. It is the Budweiser beer bottling plant. A bottle manufacturer had in the past arranged for me to tour the plant. Despite the unsightliness of the plume, I am grateful that this plant provides vitally needed jobs in the economically depressed area. Heavy traffic makes the walking unpleasant. But as the sun brightens the warm morning tow familiar faces appear as scheduled. They are engineers who are part of my organization. They each have taken a vacation day to help me plod through the sprawling suburbia of northern New Jersey.
