Items collected Friday, January 30, 2009

  • 1 glass bottle (Heineken)
  • 1 aluminum can (Budweiser)
  • 1 plastic bottle (Seagram's Ginger Ale)

  • 1 plastic carrier bag

The plastic bag has the name of the state lottery printed on it. If the government ever proposes banning or taxing plastic bags, I wonder if the lottery board will object on the grounds that plastic bags are part of its advertising efforts. I've always found the lottery's role in government bizarre. The idea that we must have a lottery in order to balance the budget has never made sense to me.
