Pogo made a good point…

In the bygone comic strip Pogo, the little possum was prescient in his observation of the impact of humankind: “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

Of course, I apply Pogo’s teaching to the lunkheads who continue to make my Saturday morning walks miserable.

Carelessness apparently isn't a seasonal thing.

Carelessness apparently isn’t a seasonal thing.

Today was no different. My F-bomb pout from last week gave way to simple resignation. They toss it out, I pick it up (and sort it and recycle it).

I don’t know what they should get for Christmas. But if Mr. Claus dropped a conscience in their stockings, that would be a good start.

About Dave Bradley (264 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; the first on 17 years of writing weekly letters to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility ( I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen these single pagers as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world and so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.

  1. A mighty big footprint indeed. Thousands of years into the future, civilizations might be studying what we disposed of in order to learn about what we were like and how we lived.
