Another Day, Another Mile

Yesterday I encountered 206 pieces of trash on a one-mile section of the Assabet River in Hudson.  Today, Mrs. Trashpaddler and I walked one-mile down to the Powdermill in Acton and took a look at the Assabet River flowing over the dam.  On our walk we recovered 42 pieces of trash.  Wish I could say it's been there all winter, buried under the snow, but I know for a fact it was tossed within the last month...

How did that go again?  "Some people have a deep abiding respect for the natural beauty that was once this country and some people don't."

Bernie, Yes, I'll always remember that most powerful of Public Service Announcements(PSA). I wonder what form a similar message for subsequent generations might take.
