    I used to cut them up before putting them in the trash but it's been a long time since I've bought any product that uses them.

    I cut them up all the time. My daughter got me doing it. A major PITA but when I see pictures like those above, it makes it worth it.

    Had one of the new breed of non-plastic drink straws last night. A little weird, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it!

    California doesn't put up with her.....the President of Fresno State does despite saying they have "distanced" themselves from her point of view. Here's what's just as disturbing....her diatribe here was prompted by a poem that was written by a “white male” published in the far-left magazine the Nation.

    If you got hiv, say aids. If you a girl,
    say you’re pregnant––nobody gonna lower
    themselves to listen for the kick. People
    passing fast. Splay your legs, cock a knee
    funny. It’s the littlest shames they’re likely
    to comprehend. Don’t say homeless, they know
    you is. What they don’t know is what opens
    a wallet, what stops em from counting
    what they drop. If you’re young say younger.
    Old say older. If you’re crippled don’t
    flaunt it. Let em think they’re good enough
    Christians to notice. Don’t say you pray,
    say you sin. It’s about who they believe
    they is. You hardly even there

    I am happy to admit I have no clue what this poem is about but here's what the editors had to say after readers said their feelings were hurt...

    As poetry editors, we hold ourselves responsible for the ways in which the work we select is received. We made a serious mistake by choosing to publish the poem “How-To.” We are sorry for the pain we have caused to the many communities affected by this poem. We recognize that we must now earn your trust back. Some of our readers have asked what we were thinking. When we read the poem we took it as a profane, over-the-top attack on the ways in which members of many groups are asked, or required, to perform the work of marginalization. We can no longer read the poem in that way.

    So because some people interpreted the poem in a certain way and got their panties in a wad, the FEMALE editors (one who is Hispanic) apologized and agreed they can't interpret the poem the way they initially did. Good Lord. Thought police.

    She's quite something.
