intellectual trash


Salut, trashies, I’m back from West Africa and everyday trash is back to everyday living. That’s right, no more exotic trips planned for now and back to our regularly scheduled programming. Thanks for your patience. It appears the world spun a bit more quickly than usual while I was gone: the US government more or less changed hands and violence in Africa and the Middle East bubbled. To lower our blood pressure in the face of chaos, here’s a link to a New Yorker trash piece pointed out to me by my friend salmon.

    so intellectual but so practical! i love the idea of having a waste watch like a weather report, especially if you could really peg waste to neighborhoods and industries. so…maybe not so practical. but if nightly news covers retail sales figures, and the stock market, and the weather, why not waste?

    and since a sanitation gig is so much more dangerous than being a police officer or firefighter, why don’t they get the same kind of attention when they are killed on the job?

    Good question.
