"Chicken manure stench holds town hostage" blares the hed of this story, but that turns out to be a pretty apt way of putting it: Thanks to a chicken manure-processing plant across the border in Canada, people in Frenchville, Maine often must keep all windows and doors closed, and can't do anything outside. "It smells like acid or sulfur, and it's really strong. The last couple of weeks have been really bad," Frenchville Town Manager Philip Levesque said. "It's an international problem." Well, so are terrorists, but at least they don't smell as bad.
