Emails from readers in response to my Sept. 30 column, which posed the warm, fuzzy question: “Are you garbage?”
From P.J. Smith: I appreciate your comments in your column in the Sunday (September 30) edition of the Sun about Garbage in the form of people . However, you failed to address the issue of people using cell phones in public. Do you not consider them to be Garbage also? I can think of three reasons why not. First, you simply forgot them. Second, you approve of the practice. Third, you use your cell phone in public and cannot risk being seen as a hypocrite.
From Ken DeHart: I agree with all your examples of garbage and I would like to add to the list. People who say they will do something and then never do it. Elected officials who never respond to concerns of the public, even after sending several e-mails. I love your column.
From Judy Meyers: Dear Emperor…….Your column on getting rid of garbage was most outstanding. Thank you and keep up the good work.
