Our thoughts...Trash on our minds

If you've ever spent time in Western states like Arizona and California, then you've probably had a hard time becoming accustomed to the trash strewn along the byways and highways by people who apparently had no respect or concern for the beauty of the land they were defacing.

It's also a night when people sometimes have a few more toasts of the toddy than they usually do.
