Twice today as I commuted I saw cars with plastic bags entwined beneath them. Yes, your US$50,000 car looks very nice. Just like your new pair of heals with toilet paper hanging off of them.

What’s wrong with us? Minimally we need to start taking the bags back to the stores and leaving them there.

Cities have banned them, and some stores have stopped using them.

Have you ever walked close to the bayous in Houston? They are by far this biggest wash-off problem. And they get tangled high in the trees for that year round enjoyment. tells me they’re killing us.

Maybe I’ll wean myself from them. Hopefully before I suffocate.
