Yesterday was a neighborhood cleanup day. South Carolina is the most littered state I've ever traveled through and Georgetown is no exception. Living in Minnesota I was used to an almost complete lack of litter, and the toss-it-from-the-window approach for disposal really baffles me. Would you throw your garbage on the floor in your home? Why is it so hard to drop it in a receptacle? I don't get it.
I'll tell you, it was back breaking work. We developed a system: I pulled it out of the slight ditch and tossed it up on the roadside, The Writer picked it up again and bagged it. It took us two hours to complete the two blocks on one side of the road!
