The Oct. 20 Variety section article “Woodpiles warm a body and the soul” contained the quote: “There’s not much about life that we can control, but we can control our woodpile.” The resultant smoke from burning a woodpile can’t be controlled, either, and it can negatively impact neighbors. Gas fires are warm, too, and also good for the soul. They also make sense from a public health perspective.
