“Benjamin Franklin said there were only two things certain in life: death and taxes. But I’d like to add a third certainty: trash. And while some in this room might want to discuss reducing taxes, I want to talk about reducing trash.”
— Ruth Ann Minner
I must admit I’m behind the times. Apparently, malt beverages have undergone a transformation.
In days gone by, it was only Pabst Blue Ribbon or some other kind of beer.
Judging from what I found in the ditch today, there are now many more choices in cheap drunks.
Regardless, no matter how times or drinks have changed, three things remains the same –
- The cans still end up in the ditch.
- The cans don’t come out of the ditch until someone picks them up.
- It only takes one person to pick up the cans.
If nothing else, your neighborhood will look better.
Today’s gift of time – Picked up trash in the neighborhood. Got an education in cheap highs.
I’ve never seen any of those beers before — of course, I don’t spend a lot of time in ditches or liquor stores… I’m grateful for folks like you who do though. THANK YOU, ERIC.
I hadn’t either, plus I happened to read the other day in our local paper’s police report about two reported cases of public intox involving High Gravity. Now I understand what it is.
I also remember the first time I went through our neighborhood picking up trash. It felt pretty uncomfortable, and I wondered who was looking at me. … The next day though as I drove to work, I noticed how much cleaner it looked.
It was a good feeling.
Thanks for following along!
