Snow, Curley and Flamethrowers

Boston is currently enjoying yet another major storm, with piles of snow growing higher and more numerous. This letter, written by legendary Boston mayor James Michael Curley to MIT, asks about the practicality of using flame-throwers to melt snow. If this is too small to read, you can also find the letter (and Dr. Compton's response) here. Enjoy.
