No Wonder the Indian Cried

Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day with sunshine and temps above 70. Spring was surely in the air, so after work Ben and I headed to a nearby park along the Grand River for a walk. As we rounded a bend in the path, the accompanying picture was the view that greeted us. How sad that people have to be such slobs -- haven't they heard of trash cans? I was reminded of the anti-littering commercial in which the Native American shed a tear at the sight of a littered landscape. Folks, if you have trash to throw, find a trash can -- your neighbors will thank you as will those who come along after you.

That WAS one of the most powerful commercials!

I agree heartily.
After picking up trash from a highway clean up event, I am for deposits on everything to force people to be more careful.
