To the editor: Bravo to David Tran of Huy Fong Foods for opening his Sriracha plant for public tours. (Re “At a fever pitch,” Aug. 23)
Years ago in San Pedro, folks would ask what odor was emanating from Terminal Island. Locals would reply that it was “the smell of money” — thousands of jobs and paychecks at the nearby canneries.
Unlike the city of Irwindale, I don’t think our fair city would have declared the long-gone businesses a public nuisance.
