I think I'm going to start using paper for that. I read something about that recently (I forget where) that struck me: we're using non-biodegradable plastic to get rid of very biodegradable stuff.

Imagine archaeologists in the future: "Wow, these guys REALLY liked cat sh*t. They went to a lot of trouble to preserve it in these plastic bags."

If people want to used grocery bags, they should have to pay 10c for each one. That would help curtail the use. We always take our own bags to the store.

If people want to use plastic grocery bags they should get .10 off for each one they bring back to the store for credit (with limits of course)
and the store get credit from the cart manufacturer that melts them down to make new wheels, which won't go bonka bonka bonka...

A new twist on a very old idea.  As a native born and raised there, this has been an ongoing debate ever since I can remember and that's back to the 50's.

Back in the 60's and before, California was a very conservative state, Western style, and saw Southern California draining the resources of the the North including water, timber and energy and mostly tax revenue.  It was the North that wanted to ditch the South.  The South was busy trying to irrigate an unihabitable desert and build highways that the tax base down there could not provide for. 

Southern California is more dependent on foreign water than anything else.  As a kid in the 60's, it was breaking news when the Colorado River actually made it all the way to the Gulf of California.  It usually was diverted so much that it never made it to the Gulf.  To understand the west, one must look at the history of water and water rights.

Now the San Joaquin Valley has been dried up by Easterners because of a stupid little fish and put thousands out of work and driven up the price of food in the process unnecessarily.

Freaking Yankees screw up everything, everywhere.  Carpetbaggers.
